Graham Potter has turned down an approach from Leicester City to become their new manager, according to talkSPORT.
Following a 2-0 home defeat to Aston Villa, the Blues took the decision to sack Potter.
His exit came only six months after he was lured from Brighton.
Leicester also parted ways with Brendan Rodgers over the weekend, with the team sitting in 19th place on the Premier League table and in real danger of relegation.
But Potter has said he will not immediately become the new Foxes manager.
It is believed Potter will take a break from football before deciding his next move.
