Leicester have sacked manager Craig Shakespeare, with the Foxes currently in 18th in the Premier League table and with just six points from eight matches.

The 53-year-old replaced Claudio Ranieri on a caretaker basis in February.

After keeping the 2015-16 champions in the Premier League he was handed a three-year contract ahead of the current campaign.

However, Leicester have won just one league game so far this season and the club's Thai owners have decided to make a change.
