St Ledger, who has been sidelined since suffering a hamstring injury at the start of October, played the first half as the development squad drew with Leeds on Monday afternoon.

However, Foxes boss Nigel Pearson insists the Republic of Ireland international centre-half still remains some way off a return to first-team football.

"He had half a game but he's got a long way to go," said Pearson. "It's good that he's training and got some pitch time but he's quite a long time out now so it's important that we get the balance right.

"I don't want people to start putting huge expectation on him getting back in the next week or so because that's not going to happen.

"But it's good to get him back amongst the players and training and he'll feel a lot better himself about getting some pitch time and that's always important in a player's rehabilitation."

Karlton Watson scored Leicester's goal in the 1-1 draw.

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.
