The 24-year-old was signed by Shakespeare in the summer for £17 million.

He added that Shakespeare was a "great man and great coach".

Leicester City sack Craig Shakespeare

Craig Shakespeare has been sacked as Leicester manager, Press Association Sport understands.

The 53-year-old replaced Claudio Ranieri on a caretaker basis in February.

After keeping the 2015-16 champions in the Premier League he was handed a three-year contract ahead of the current campaign.

However, Leicester have won just one league game so far this season and the club's Thai owners have decided to make a change.

Shakespeare was given around £60million to spend on players in the summer transfer window, including £25million for striker Kelechi Iheanacho, £17million for centre-half Harry Maguire and £15million on midfielder Vicente Iborra, but Leicester's only Premier League win came against newly-promoted Brighton in August.

Their only other points have been picked up in draws against Huddersfield, Bournemouth and West Brom while Shakespeare oversaw wins against Sheffield United and Liverpool in the Carabao Cup.

Monday night's 1-1 home draw with the Baggies saw Leicester's winless Premier League run reach six matches - the same as when Ranieri was sacked earlier this year.
