MICHAEL Appleton’s three-year reign at Oxford United came to an end as he left to become Leicester City’s assistant manager.

The 41-year-old led the U's to promotion from Sky League Two in 2016, two Wembley cup finals and a string of giant-killings over higher-level opposition.

But Appleton decided to end his time at Oxford to join Foxes boss Craig Shakespeare, with whom he had worked with at West Bromwich Albion.

The move left United without a manager just two weeks before the start of pre-season training.
