Craig Shakespeare has agreed a three-year contract to remain as Leicester manager, according to Sky sources.

Shakespeare took interim charge following Claudio Ranieri’s departure in February and was later appointed full-time boss until the end of the season.

Ranieri’s former assistant, who also worked under the Italian’s predecessor Nigel Pearson, steered the champions to a comfortable mid-table finish and ended the campaign with a record of eight wins from 16 games.

His new deal is expected to be confirmed by the club within the next 24 hours.

The Leicester job is a first in management for Shakespeare, who has also coached at West Brom and Hull.

The 53-year-old became the first English boss to win his first five Premier League games and also oversaw a win over Sevilla in the Champions League knockout stages.
