leicester City are poised to confirm the appointment of Michael Appleton as Craig Shakespeare's No 2 and are considering a second bid for Jonny Evans.

Appleton, the Oxford manager, is expected to complete his move to the Foxes this week.

West Brom rejected a £10m bid for Evans last week, insisting the Northern Ireland defender was not for sale at any price, but Leicester are prepared to test their resolve by making an bigger offer.
