Leicester boss Pearson confirms push for Dutch legend Davids

Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson has confirmed they want to sign Edgar Davids.

The 36-year-old, who has 65 caps for his country, has played for Ajax, AC Milan, Juventus, Barcelona, Inter Milan and Tottenham and is available on a free transfer after his second spell at Ajax came to an end in the summer of 2008.

Davids is thought to be keen on a return to England having played for Spurs between 2005 and 2007 and Press Association Sport understands that Portsmouth are also interested in signing the player.

Leicester manager Nigel Pearson said: "When players become available, if they are the right players for us then we investigate it.

"There has been interest but after that I am not in a position to comment further. There is nothing to elaborate on at the moment.

"There has been interest in both directions, but whether it comes to anything is another story."
