Key players such as Kasper Schmeichel and Wes Morgan have been the subject of media reports about their futures, with it widely accepted that the Foxes have had to trim their wage bill in order to fall in line with the new Financial Fair Play regulations.

Jermaine Beckford and Richie Wellens left for precisely that reason over the summer - striker Beckford sold to Sky Bet Championship rivals Bolton and central midfielder Wellens having the final year of his contract settled.

Full-back Paul Konchesky was this week the latest member of Pearson's squad said to be leaving the King Power Stadium with a move to QPR mooted, although the City boss insists he knows nothing about it.

"We have had to deal with an awful lot of disruptive speculation about players, it has been going on all summer," Pearson told the Leicester Mercury.

"I have had managers call me last week telling me they have had agents telling them they can get any of my players out of the club. The players find that out, but all in all they have dealt with what has been quite a difficult summer very well.

"It has been a bit irritating at times, but I know it will be there.

"When there is news, we will let you know and we will let you know through the right channels and at the appropriate time, but not through third parties who think they have a divine right to throw spanners in the works.

"I am not interested in talking about players in or out until it is the right time to do so." Pearson added: "I don't know anything about it (Konchesky to QPR reports), it is as simple as that. I suppose I will find out in good time."
