Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson expects a quiet transfer day
Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson is expecting a quiet transfer deadline day today.
The City boss has said he is not anticipating being busy in the transfer market as the window closes at 11pm.
However, Pearson would not rule out doing some business if a deal presented itself.
City have not been linked with many new arrivals, and the transfer speculation has revolved around possible departures before the deadline, but Pearson said he was not interested in speculation.
"I don't anticipate any great things happening, if I am honest, but you never know," he said yesterday.
"I am not interested in speculation and, when there is news, we will release it in the appropriate manner."
Both Paul Gallagher and Jermaine Beckford have been linked with Huddersfield as they look to recruit following the £8million sale of star striker Jordan Rhodes to Blackburn, while Sean St Ledger and Gallagher have been linked with a move to Ipswich.
Reports in Ipswich say Gallagher has been told he can leave City for a fee of £500,000.
St Ledger was on the verge of joining the Tractor Boys last season after falling out of favour under Pearson, but Sol Bamba's departure to the African Nations Cup halted the deal at the last minute.
However, St Ledger, who made his comeback from injury in the 4-2 defeat against Burton Albion on Tuesday night, is again said to be a target for Ipswich boss Paul Jewell.
Jewell is looking to bolster a defence that conceded six goals last weekend against Blackpool, who face City tomorrow.
City are in talks with defender Tom Kennedy about the cancellation of his contract so he can become a free agent, but there is no rush for that to be finalised as free agents are not restricted by the transfer window.
With Kennedy's impending departure, Pearson's defensive options are even more limited and City have been linked with Stoke duo Danny Higginbotham and Ryan Shotton.
City's Championship clash with Hull at the King Power Stadium next month will now take place on Sunday, September 23, at 3pm.
The game had originally been due to take place 24 hours earlier, but has been rescheduled due to a clash with Leicester Tigers' fixture against Harlequins at Welford Road on the Saturday.
All tickets purchased for the original date will be valid but supporters who can no longer attend, can obtain a refund by visiting the City Fanstore at King Power Stadium.
