Leicester City paid Celtic £9m to land Brendan Rodgers as new manager

Leicester's
mid-season swoop to sign Brendan Rodgers and his backroom team from Celtic
cost the Premier League
side £9million.
Rodgers was chosen by the Foxes to replace the sacked Claude Puel and he was unveiled alongside assistant Kolo Toure, Chris Davies and Glen Driscoll on February 26.
The figure was included as a clause in the four-year deal he signed with Celtic in April 2017, and was reportedly set to drop in the summer when his Parkhead exit would have been cheaper.
Rodgers won seven trophies in just under three years in Scotland, but his exit angered many supporters with the club closing on a historic treble treble this season.
Alongside the managerial switches, changes are afoot at the club with head of recruitment Eduardo Macia due to depart the club on Saturday.
The Spaniard has been with the Foxes since September 2016, but his departure marks a change of strategy.
The club are also continuing with plans for a brand new, state-of-the-art £80million training facility with hopes to have it completed within the year. 
Having lost his first game against Leicester, Rodgers earned his maiden win on his home debut against Fulham and will now take 10th-placed Leciester to Burley on Saturday.
