THOMAS FRANK is the leading candidate to replace Brendan Rodgers as manager of Leicester City.

Several candidates are in the running with Sean Dyche second in the betting at 5/2, narrowly ahead of Mauricio Pochettino (9/2).

Former Everton boss Rafa Benitez is available at 6s, while Marcelo Bielsa and Southampton's Ralph Hasenhuttl are offered at 17/2 and 10/1 respectively.

A Premier League return for Unai Emery is priced at 14/1, followed closely by 16/1 trio Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Daniel Farke and Scott Parker.

Speculation surrounding the future of Brendan Rodgers continues amid the club's appalling form.

The Foxes are winless and rock-bottom of the division having taken a single point from their opening seven matches.

Leicester's 22 goals conceded is the most any team has shipped after seven games of a Premier League season, and the most in the English top-flight since 1965.

Rodgers' side have kept just two clean sheets in 19 games, and conceded 25 set-piece goals since the start of the 2021-22 season.

The bookies had priced the 49-year-old at 3/10 to be the next top-flight boss relieved of his duties.

But that price has stabilised to Evens after various reports claimed it would cost upwards of £10m to dismiss the Northern Irishman.
