Leicester boss Pearson coy over deal for Wigan midfielder Maloney

Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson is tightlipped on a deal for Wigan Athletic midfielder Shaun Maloney.

It is understood a fee of just over £1million has been agreed between the two clubs after City's initial offer was rebuffed.

Despite Leicester seemingly closing in on their latest acquisition, a guarded Pearson said: "I'm not in a position to comment further.

"The reason for that is if things don't happen then the player has to perform for his current club, so it's unfair to talk openly about that.
