Leicester City have rejected an approach from Newcastle United for first-team coach Chris Powell, reports BBC Radio Leicester.

New Magpies manager Alan Pardew knows the former England defender from their time together at Charlton Athletic.

And he was eager to bring in Powell as part of his new-look backroom staff.

The 41-year-old, who made his England debut under Foxes boss Sven-Goran Eriksson, only retired from playing at the end of last season.
