Powell set to take Addicks' job

Leicester City coach Chris Powell is poised to leave the Walkers Stadium and return to Charlton Athletic, where he made over 250 appearances in three spells at the Valley.

Powell retired from football whilst playing for the Foxes and was gratefully received into Nigel Pearson's dressing room staff in 2008. The 41 year-old also had a spell as caretaker manager of Leicester after the sacking of Paulo Sousa earlier this year.

The charismatic Powell became a firm favourite with Foxes fans as he made regular appearances on match days. It is not yet known who is to replace Powell.
