- Craig Shakespeare and John Terry join backroom staff
- Foxes also held talks with Rafael Benítez
Leicester City have turned to Dean Smith in a bid to preserve their Premier League status after appointing the former Aston Villa manager on a short-term contract until the end of the season.
Leicester had pinpointed Jesse Marsch as a possible successor to Brendan Rodgers but after talks broke down over the weekend they accelerated talks with Smith, who was sacked by Norwich City in December, after failing to mount a challenge for automatic promotion.
