Nigel Pearson confirmed manager of Leicester Belgian partners OH Leuven

Former Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson has taken charge of their Belgian partners Oud-Heverlee Leuven.

Pearson replaces Dennis van Wijk as manager having built a relationship with the club's Thai owner, Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha, during his time at Leicester.

Pearson told the club's website: "I'm delighted to be back in football, to be working with King Power again and to be applying my experiences to the development of a club in a really exciting position.

"I know from experience how King Power will want to go about developing every aspect of OHL and I'm really looking forward to trying to help the club realise some of its ambitions going forward.

"The club has an exciting group of players and a dedicated team of staff that I'm really looking forward to working with every day in pursuit of our goals."
