Brendan Rodgers targets Celtic head of recruitment Lee Congerton for Leicester reunion

Brendan Rodgers is targeting a summer reunion with Lee Congerton, Celtic’s head of recruitment.

Congerton is in line to join Rodgers at Leicester ahead of next season and would replace Eduardo Macia, whose contract at the King Power Stadium expires this summer.

Rodgers has already recruited three members of his former Celtic back-room staff – Chris Davies, Kolo Toure and Glen Driscoll – since his appointment last week and is poised to move for Congerton when the season finishes.

Congerton, 45, has also worked with Rodgers at Chelsea and is highly rated by the new Leicester manager.

Macia, Leicester’s current head of recruitment, is expected to leave when his deal runs out. He could pursue a move to Bordeaux.
