Transfer News and Speculation, 14 June

Leicester City have been denied permission to speak to the Milton Keynes Dons manager Paul Ince about the vacant managerial position at the Walkers Stadium.

The club's chairman, Milan Mandaric, made an official approach to the Dons owner, Pete Winkelman, last week with regards to his manager succeeding Ian Holloway. A statement release by the Dons read: "Following discussions between the chairman and Paul Ince, it has been decided that Paul will not be pursuing the opportunity at Leicester City. The club is committed to keeping the hottest young manager in English football."
