Pearson tight-lipped on Lita link

Leroy Lita
Lita spent time on loan with Norwich City last season

Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson is remaining tight-lipped on rumours linking the club with a move for former Reading striker Leroy Lita.

But BBC Sport understands that Lita, 24, is top of Pearson's wishlist as he looks to sign a forward ahead of the club's return to the Championship.

Pearson told BBC Radio Leicester: "We will see what happens.

"I know there's a lot of speculation about him [Lita] but I wouldn't like to make any comment at the moment."

The former England U-21 international fell out of favour with the Royals last season and spent time on loan with Norwich City.

Pearson added: "If we can improve we will but at the moment I can't really elaborate on that.

"I won't bring players in for the sake of bringing players in."
