Holloway Reportedly Set for Leicester
News of the World EXCLUSIVE:
New manager for Leicester - Foxes get Holloway
By David Harrison
IAN HOLLOWAY will this week be unveiled as the new Leicester City manager.
The QPR boss led his side for the last time at Leeds yesterday before he succeeds the axed Craig Levein at the Walkers Stadium.
Leicester chairman Jim McCahill, who was also linked with Burnley's Steve Cotterill and Mike Newell of Luton, contacted Rangers last week and agreed a compensation package.
A Leicester source confirmed: "Ian has agreed to join us.
"Everyone has seen what a great job he's done at QPR. His enthusiasm and passion will inspire us to move away from the relegation zone."
Holloway, 42, a former QPR player, returned to Loftus Road as manager five years ago after a similar period as boss of Bristol Rovers.
He led Rangers to promotion to the Championship in 2004. in Despite the initial disappointment of relegation to League One, Holloway gradually turned the club round.
After narrowly missing out on the play-offs in 2002, QPR reached the play-off final in 2003 but were beaten 1-0 by Cardiff.
The following season he achieved promotion to the Championship as League One runners-up with a final-day victory over Sheffield Wednesday
