Reports he has accepted Leicester offer

Paulo Sousa is reported to have left Swansea City, amid speculation he is to take charge of Championship rivals Leicester. The Portuguese legend took charge at The Liberty Stadium last summer, succeeding Roberto Martinez - who joined Premier League Wigan. Sousa already has managerial experience in England following a five-month stint with QPR, but he showed a real liking for life in South Wales as he guided them to seventh place in his first year in charge. But now according to Welsh and Portuguese sources, Sousa has left Swansea and accepted an offer to take charge of Leicester, who lost manager Nigel Pearson to Hull City earlier in the week. Reports suggest that Sousa failed to agree terms over a new deal with Swansea and is now set to pen a three-year deal at The Walkers Stadium.
