Hull City boss Nigel Pearson is being lined up for a return to Leicester City.

The Mirror says Leicester are weighing up a move to bring back Pearson as their new manager.

Hull chief Pearson was a hit at the Foxes and took them to the play-offs but clashed with previous owner Milan Mandaric.

Despite modest resources, Pearson has now impressed at Hull and could be tempted to return under the Thai owners.
