There are yet to be formal discussions on Shakespeare’s prospects for the permanent manager’s job but initial dialogue is expected in the coming days with a belief that the 53-year-old will be offered a permanent role.

Shakespeare said on Sunday he expects a swift resolution, with Leicester needing to press ahead on transfer targets.

It has been suspected chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha was open to bringing in a manager of greater experience but Shakespeare impressed by guiding Leicester away from the relegation zone and into the Champions League quarter-finals.

The club usually travel to Thailand for a goodwill tour after the end of each season but have elected to stay closer to home, with a long-haul journey to Hong Kong in the pre-season schedule.

Leicester staff are in the principality to take in this weekend’s Grand Prix.
