Walker makes Foxes pledge
Leicester goalkeeper Ian Walker
Ian Walker insists he wants to stay at Leicester even if the club are relegated from the Premiership.

The England goalkeeper stayed the last time the Foxes went down in 2002 and is keen to do so given the same scenario.

"I've got another year left at Leicester and, as far as I'm concerned, I'm going to see it out," he said.

"Unless the club or manager tell me otherwise, there is nothing to worry about. I'm not going to go in and ask for a move if we are relegated."

Walker would be one of the players likely to be in demand, along with out-of-contract midfielder Muzzy Izzet, if Leicester are relegated.

We are not down yet
Ian Walker
The former Tottenham keeper, signed by the then Leicester manager Peter Taylor in the summer of 2001, has 14 months remaining of his current contract.

"If we are relegated, then obviously there are a lot of things that will have to happen again in and around the club to sort out for next year," he added.

"But we are not down yet. I think we need to win something like three of our last five games which will be difficult as we've only won five all season.

"We do need other teams to do us a favour but if we can beat Blackburn on Saturday, and then follow it up with a home win against Manchester City, then everything will be back in the melting pot."
