Leicester Chairman - Leicester still "some way" from Appointing Manager

BBC - Leicester continue manager search
Leicester are still "some way" from finding a replacement for sacked manager Craig Levein, club chairman Jim McCahill has told BBC Sport.
Levein's 14-month spell in charge ended on 25 January with the Foxes facing relegation from the Championship.
"We are some way away yet from making a decision," McCahill said.
"By the end of next week we hope to be concentrating on the last two or three recommended candidates but I can't comment on any individuals."
Burnley boss Steve Cotterill has turned down an approach from Leicester while Preston did likewise when their manager Billy Davies was targeted.
Notts County manager Gudjon Thordarson, QPR boss Ian Holloway and Luton manager Mike Newell have all been linked with the post.
We've not ruled out Rob Kelly continuing to the end of the season with extra support from an experienced coach or manager

The former Blackburn coach lost his first two games at the helm but saw the Foxes take a vital three points at QPR.
If Kelly builds up a run of results, McCahill said he could find himself in the position over the long-term.
"We mustn't forget Rob Kelly is doing a good job," said McCahill.
"We've not ruled out Rob continuing to the end of the season with extra support from an experienced coach or manager.
"The longer results go our way the more it takes away the urgency of making an appointment.
"However, from the time Craig left our priority has been to preserve our Championship status and we know we need to sort the manager's position out."
