Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson looks to add more recruits
Nigel Pearson is considering another dip into the loan market.
The Leicester City boss has suggested he may target an experienced player after left-back Paul Konchesky suffered a hamstring injury at Bolton on Tuesday.
City do not have a like-for-like replacement for the 31-year-old Konchesky, with striker Jeffrey Schlupp once again being used as a make-shift left-back at the Reebok Stadium.
"Paul will be out (for the Nottingham Forest game on Saturday) I would suspect," said Pearson.

"He felt his hamstring pull so I think it is pretty certain that he will be missing, which is a shame.
"I think, at some point, we will try and add a bit more experience, it's not just about having young players.
"Maybe with Konchesky being on the sidelines we may need to have a look at the possibility of more experienced players.
"But, as I have said before, I am not bringing in players for the sake of it.
"I am not going to add players just because people start bleating on about the fact we might need players.
"It took me long enough last season to get rid of players who were either not good enough, or didn't want to be at the club, and it's been a huge task for us to eliminate those influences from the club.
"So I don't intend to have any knee-jerk reactions in terms of bringing players in. Any players we do bring in will be because we feel that they are the right people for our football club."
Pearson has only just added to his squad with the arrival of the young Manchester United starlets Michael Keane and Jesse Lingard earlier this week.
But Keane could also be a worry as the 19-year-old came off in the 57th minute on Tuesday suffering with a tight hamstring.
Sean St Ledger is on the road to recovery from a hamstring injury of his own, but he is not expected to be fit in time for Saturday.
But centre-back Zac Whitbread will be eligible for selection as he returns from a one-match suspension following his red card against Watford.
