Football: McGhee decision imminent

Click to follow
Leicester City and Wolverhampton Wanderers expect to learn today whether Mark McGhee is to cross the Midlands to succeed Graham Taylor as manager at Molineux. McGhee, along with his coaching team of Colin Lee and Mike Hickman, spent 10 hours in talks with the Leicester board yesterday but left with the issue apparently still unresolved.

It is understood that Leicester have offered the 38-year-old Glaswegian a pay rise of pounds 50,000 a year to stay, as well as putting up pounds 2m to spend on players. McGhee, who has described Wolves as "the last of the sleeping giants", left Reading for Filbert Street almost a year ago after first announcing he was staying. He has a year and a half of his present contract to run.
