Leicester owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha is to face a trial in his native Thailand over his company King Power’s alleged failure to pay £322m in taxes.

King Power was granted a monopoly over duty free shops at airports in Thailand in 2006, and the company allegedly owes the Thai government £322m.

However, Srivaddhanaprabha has always denied any wrongdoing.

The 59-year-old brought Leicester in 2010 and he was named chairman the following year.

The Foxes have enjoyed unprecedented success subsequently, claiming a remarkable Premier League title in 2015/16.
