If various reports are to be believed and then compiled together, it seems that Leicester City may have a four-man shortlist of potential new managers. Foxes of Leicester offer opinions on the respective quartet of applicants, notable and otherwise.

In addition to covering the vacant hot seat at King Power Stadium, FoL also focus on some renewals and exits. Three senior players have left the east Midlands side, whilst two other prominent stars both signed contract extensions.

Out of the door go Dennis Praet, Kelechi Iheanacho and Marc Albrighton

Club legend Marc Albrighton will be missed on Filbert Way. A true professional and winner, it'll be interesting to see what's next for the Englishman. I am surprised that Dennis Praet stayed at LCFC for so long. Good luck to him in his future endeavours.

Meanwhile Iheanacho is probably the most surprising early summer leaver. Clearly he wasn't favoured by now former boss Enzo Maresca, but the Nigeria international could have impressed the soon-to-be incoming Foxes manager. Nevertheless, the forward must have fancied a fresh challenge.

Leicester City icon Jamie Vardy and determined defender Jannik Vestergaard stay

Vardy, probably the most famous ever Fox, is staying for now. Vardy has penned a one-year extension on his agreement. We can't wait to see the No.9 terrorising Premier League defences once again.

Vestergaard signed for another three seasons. The Dane fully rejuvenated his career at City in an impressive campaign under Maresca. Will he retain his starting position when the Italian's successor arrives?

The Telegraph and other outlets most frequently mentioning four names as possible Foxes gaffers

Right, let's get to something very pressing for the LCFC hierarchy: choosing a new team leader. Maresca's departure will have caused far more upheaval at the King Power than some people would imagine.

Appointing the next manager in a timely fashion is essential. If we take stories in the media to be accurate, there are a few candidates. I would say that four bosses in particular are most often talked of as being in the frame.

Recently added nomination Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is now being spoken of nationwide. The ex-Manchester United striker and head coach is said to be 'in talks' with Leicester dignitaries over the role.

While The Telegraph claim one-time Chelsea boss Graham Potter is on the LCFC radar too. They also mention Carlos Corberan of West Bromwich Albion. Elsewhere former Nottingham Forest gaffer Steve Cooper has been alluded to a lot as well.
