Leicester boss Pearson insists off contract players under control

Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson insists there's no panic over the squad's contract situation.

Anthony Knockaert, now in talks with Standard Liege, is one of ten of the club's first team squad who are out of contract this summer.

As well as the Frenchman, Dean Hammond, Esteban Cambiasso, Paul Konchesky, Marcin Wasilewski, Conrad Logan, Matt Upson, Gary Taylor-Fletcher, Paul Gallagher and Zoumana Bakayogo are all free agents, although Pearson recently stated that the club were taking care of the situation and looking to secure their assets.

"Those issues are being addressed now," Pearson told the Leicester Mercury. "Talks are taking place.

"It is always a case of us trying to protect our assets.

"We had to deal with a difficult situation last year in a different set of circumstances, but contractual issues are ongoing."
