There are reports coming out of Leicester that the club will offer Craig Shakespeare the manager's position until the end of the season.

BBC Radio Leicester are reporting that the club will offer the caretaker manager the position in a full time capacity as they look to secure their place in the top division.

The reigning Premier League champions sacked Claudio Ranieri after a disastrous campaign which saw them drawn into a relegation dog-fight.

However, since taking over from the Italian, Shakespeare has guided the team to successive wins over Liverpool and Hull to put some breathing space between the current champions and the drop zone.
