Former Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is under consideration at Leicester City.

The People says Redknapp is a shock target for Leicester if boss Nigel Pearson does not keep the Foxes in the promotion frame.

Redknapp - sacked by Tottenham in June- has already been linked with Ipswich, where Paul Jewell is under pressure.

Leicester's Thai owners are desperate for a return on their investment and Pearson's position was looking precarious before his side beat high-flying Blackpool last weekend.
