Leicester City ace Paul Gallagher denies rift with Nigel Pearson
Paul Gallagher has denied any rift with manager Nigel Pearson after completing his loan move to Sheffield United.
The Leicester City midfielder has joined the League One side for an initial one-month loan spell.
Gallagher admitted he had grown frustrated at his lack of first-team opportunities this season.
Gallagher, who joined City from Blackburn in August 2009 and has made 130 appearances, scoring 28 goals, refused to talk about what has gone wrong for him at the club, but said he still had a strong relationship with Pearson.

"I'm here (at Sheffield) for a month and then we'll see what happens," he said. "If things go well, we can take it from there.
"What happened at Leicester, I'm not going to talk about. I'd prefer to keep it in-house, but I've got a very good relationship with the manager.
"I hate not playing for two weeks, so to hardly play for nearly three months is really difficult. That's all I want to do, play football, and I'll look to channel my frustration in the right way if I'm involved now."
The 28-year-old said it took just a 10-minute phone call from Blades boss Danny Wilson to convince him to head to Bramall Lane.
"The size of this club meant I couldn't say no when the chance arose," said Gallagher.
"To play in front of a crowd like this one is every footballer's dream."
Gallagher will go straight into Wilson's squad for their clash with Bury tomorrow. His loan will run up to and including Wednesday, October 10.
Meanwhile, Leeds have not followed up their interest in City midfielder Neil Danns, which was reported yesterday.
Danns was the subject of an inquiry about a possible loan, but Leeds have opted instead for Stoke midfielder Michael Tonge.
Huddersfield boss Simon Grayson has said he would continue to monitor Jermaine Beckford's situation at City.
Pearson said yesterday that Beckford would continue to play for City.
"If we feel that deals are there to be done that suit us, then fine, but we won't be press-ganged into deals that aren't right for us," he said.
