Brendan Rodgers is believed to have left Celtic Football Club, as reports in Scotland claim the Antrim man is heading to Leicester to succeed Claude Puel.
The Foxes - who sit 12th in the Premier League table - are said to have agreed a deal in principal with the Scottish champions.
Rodgers could be at the King Power Stadium to watch for tonight's Premier League match against Brighton and Hove Albion.

In a statement this morning, the club said "Brendan has indicated to the club that this is an opportunity he wishes to investigate further and therefore, very reluctantly, the club has granted him permission to speak to Leicester City."
Chris Davies and Kolo Toure, who are currently part of Rodgers' staff at Celtic Park, are expected to join him in Leicester if a deal is agreed.
Neil Lennon is tipped to take charge of Celtic until the end of the season - he was in charge at Celtic Park between 2010 and 2014.
Celtic are eight points clear of nearest rivals Rangers in the league as they chase an eighth successive title.
