Ex- Leicester boss Puel in frame for instant Ligue 1

Former Leicester City boss Claude Puel is being linked with a quick return to management.

Puel was axed by the Foxes on Sunday after seeing his side make it seven games without a win, losing 4-1 to Crystal Palace on Saturday.

But he could be in for a quick return to management with Ligue 1 club Bordeaux, says L'Equipe.

Bordeaux sacked manager Ricardo this week having slipped to 13th in the table.

And Puel, who was in charge of Leicester for 16 months in all, may fancy the job with Bordeaux being relatively close to his hometown of Castres in the south of France.
