Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson has praised the contribution midfielder Andy King is making to the team.

The 21-year-old scored his fourth goal of the season in Saturday's 2-1 win over Swansea in the Championship.

Pearson told BBC Radio Leicester that he has been impressed with King's overall impact on the team.

"He was exceptional. For a young man, in his second full season, he's playing well but his contribution on all levels is excellent," he said.
