Appleton leaves Oxford United to join Leicester

Oxford United manager Michael Appleton has left the club to join Leicester City as Craig Shakespeare's assistant.

Appleton, who guided Oxford to automatic promotion from League Two and two Wembley finals in the Football League Trophy during his three years at the club, had previously worked with Shakespeare at West Brom.

Former Portsmouth, Blackpool and Blackburn boss Appleton added: "The opportunity to move to a Premier League club was something I felt that I couldn't turn down, which I hope fans will appreciate."
