Leicester are set to unveil Martin Allen as their new manager after calling a press conference at the Walkers Stadium for Friday.

The Foxes have been in talks with the MK Dons manager who had been given permission by the Coca-Cola League Two club to meet Leicester chairman Milan Mandaric to succeed Rob Kelly as boss of the Championship side.

Caretaker manager Nigel Worthington and Neil Warnock were two of the other candidates on Mandaric´s shortlist.
