Super Eagles duo of Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi will be working with a new manager at Leicester City after the club parted company with Claude Puel after 16 months in charge of the Foxes, Completesports.com reports.
Leicester City were thumped 4-1 at home by Crystal Palace in what was Puel’s last game.
The loss to Crystal Palace meant Leicester have lost four consecutive home Premier League games for the first time since January 2000 and conceded the first goal in 19 Premier League matches this season – more than any other side.
Puel, 57, leaves the club 12th in the Premier League having lost five of their last six league games.
The Frenchman guided Leicester to a ninth-place finish in the Premier League in his first season but the club are now looking for their fourth permanent manager in 23 months.
First-team coaches Mike Stowell and Adam Sadler will take temporary charge of the squad.
Leicester’s next game is at home in the Premier League against Brighton on Tuesday.
Puel was appointed in October 2017, succeeding Craig Shakespeare who in turn followed 2015-16 Premier League winning manager Claudio Ranieri in managing the club.
The former Lyon boss had been fired in June 2017 by Southampton and arrived at Leicester City four months later with the club third from bottom of the league.
Puel led Leicester City to ninth in the table, just their second top-10 finish in the Premier League since 2000.
