Eriksson to be named new Leicester City boss

ESPNsoccernet can confirm that Sven-Goran Eriksson is set to cement his appointment as the new Leicester City manager.

Eriksson, whose last job saw him lead Ivory Coast at the 2010 World Cup, will take charge after Paulo Sousa was sacked just nine games into the Championship season.

Eriksson attended the Foxes' home game against Scunthorpe on Saturday along with owner Milan Mandaric and he is due to start work on Monday. A press conference has been called to announce his appointment on Sunday morning.

A source close to the negotiations told ESPNsoccernet: "The deal is 99% done on a two-year contract. Sven is expected at the game."

Saudi Arabian side Al Hilal had offered Eriksson a one-year, £1.2 million deal, and the source added: "They were one of three clubs who had made offers to Sven."
