Leicester boss Pearson says buying plans not over

Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson insists their market plans are not over.

Pearson says there's no set target for signings.

He told the Leicester Mercury: "There has been a lot of business this summer so far. It has been good we have been able to retain key players and added some players who will enhance the squad, which is positive.

"We will continue to try to strengthen the squad before the season starts.

"How many? I don't know. It depends on whether we get the players we are trying to achieve at the moment. We might get a couple more in and we might not.

"When you strengthen a side it is about doing precisely that.

"Players become available and there is speculation about players people think you want to sign, but the reality is that a lot of these stories are generated by third parties."
