Pearson refuses to commit to Leicester future

Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson says he can not make any promises about his future at the Walkers Stadium. The Foxes saw their hopes of playing in the Premier League next term come to an end on Wednesday, when they lost their play-off clash with Cardiff City.

Pearson has just one year remaining on his current contract and has still to agree a new deal at the club.

He says contract negotiations are now up to City and chairman Milan Mandaric.

"I can't give anyone any assurances because, as I have said before, managers get sacked all the time," he told the Leicester Mercury.

"The ball is in the court of the club now and has been for some time. All those sorts of things (budget talks) at this moment in time are private. I don't want to discuss targets for next season.

"The ball is very much in the club's court in terms of the next stage. We will see how things develop."
