Leicester City chairman Milan Mandaric has admitted the club might not announce their new manager until "the end of the week" after all.

Mandaric had hoped to name Ian Holloway's successor by Tuesday.

John Gregory, Simon Grayson, Paul Lambert and Northern Ireland boss Nigel Worthington have been linked to City.

Mandaric told the club website: "I had hoped to have someone in place by now but it looks as though the search could go on until the end of this week."

The former Portsmouth chairman is thought to have interviewed all the names on his shortlist, apart from MK Dons boss Paul Ince who he was refused permission to talk to.

The new manager will be the sixth boss at the Walkers Stadium since Mandaric took over the club.

Rob Kelly, Worthington, Martin Allen, Gary Megson and Holloway have all had spells in charge of Leicester in the last 16 months.
