Brendan Rodgers was tonight confirmed as the new manager of Leicester City, replacing Claude Puel who was sacked on Sunday.

The former Liverpool boss arrives from Celtic on a deal which will see him at the King Power until 2022.

The 46-year-old has been linked with a move to the Premier League for some time after a successful spell in charge of Celtic but many have expressed surprise at the timing of the move. Ironically, former Leicester player Neil Lennon is being tipped to take charge of Celtic until the end of the season.

Rodgers will be watch Leicester against Watford tonight but will not take charge of the team until Saturday's trip to Watford.  

Joining him at Leicester will be assistant manager Chris Davies; first team fitness coach, Glen Driscoll and first team coach, Kolo Touré.

“I’m very privileged and honoured to be here as Leicester City manager and I’ll give my life to make the supporters proud of their club," Rodgers told the Leicester City website.

"Together, we’ll be stronger and I’m looking forward to working with the players, staff and supporters to make the right steps forward.”

Leicester City Vice Chairman, Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha, said: “I’m absolutely delighted to bring a manager of Brendan’s calibre to Leicester City and I look forward to seeing what he, our talented, young squad and our dedicated, skilled team of staff can achieve together.

“As projects, including the development of our new training ground and the proposed expansion of King Power Stadium continue to take shape, and as a young squad of great potential begins to mature, Brendan and his colleagues arrive at an exciting time for Leicester City. We’re continuing to grow as a Club and I am anticipating that Brendan’s coaching methods, knowledge and experience can enhance our journey.”
