Leicester City chairman Milan Mandaric is still interested in signing former Foxes striker Paul Dickov.

The Scot, 35, seemed to have rejected a move back to Leicester when he went to talk to Canadian side Toronto FC.

Mandaric told BBC Radio Leicester: "Right now he's still in the process of talking to a North American team.

"We're in dialogue with him, so we don't know what will happen but we do still have interest and we will see what happens."

Dickov is also a target of Championship side Blackpool, where he spent a loan spell at last season.

Manchester City decided to release Dickov at the end of the season.

He played for Leicester for two years between 2004 and 2006, scoring 37 goals in 97 appearances.

Mandaric also praised new manager Nigel Pearson on the players he has recruited this summer.

He said: "The additions we have brought in are spot on. Its a tremendous recruiting programme by Nigel and his staff and I think every player that he brought so far is going to play a key role in our campaign next season."
