Leicester City manager Micky Adams has confirmed that Alan Cork has been appointed as his assistant at the Walkers Stadium.

The former manager of both rival Welsh clubs Swansea and Cardiff City, will begin in his new role as Adams' number two on Monday having agreed terms with The Foxes earlier this week.

Cork has previously worked with both Adams at Fulham during the Leicester manager's spell in charge at Craven Cottage and the club's Director of Football, Dave Bassett, who was his manager for six-and-a-half of his 14 years as a player at Wimbledon.

Adams, who took over the managerial reins at Leicester from Bassett in April this year, said he was glad to be renewing his partnership with Cork.

"I am delighted to get Alan on board and look forward to working with him again," Adams declared.

"It's always nice to get some continuity and it will help matters that we've worked before. He knows what we're after here and he's very enthusiastic about the job.

"It was a relief to eventually get him and pleasing that we've managed to get it all sorted out before the start of pre-season."

Cork left Cardiff City in February, despite having led them to promotion from Division Three the previous season and guiding them to their famous 2-1 win over Leeds United in the FA Cup third round in January.
