Craig Shakespeare is set to become Nigel Pearson’s number two at Leicester after leaving West Brom.

West Brom manager Tony Mowbray was sorry to see him leave his club but as he told wba.co.uk he couldn’t stand in his way, as he understands that he wants to move up the management ladder, starting with his probable position with us ‘We are sorry to see Craig leave. He contributed greatly to our success last season but we didn’t want to stand in his way.
‘He feels it is an opportunity to progress his career from being a coach to an assistant manager, and it is a good opportunity for him.’

Shakespeare should be appointed as Pearson’s number two any time now.
