With the Foxes having secured promotion back to the Premier League, preparations for next season can now begin.

Tying key men down to new deals is considered a top priority, with discussions having been held back as a bid to return to the top tier unfolded.

A lack of activity on the contract front has sparked speculation regarding the futures of Kasper Schmeichel, David Nugent and Lloyd Dyer.

They are, however, set to be offered new deals, while the likes of Danny Drinkwater, Liam Moore and Jeff Schlupp will see fresh terms tabled.

Pearson's own future will also be looked at, as his contract runs down, but he remains confident that all issues will be resolved in good time - with it important to ensure that a successful squad is kept together.

He said in the Leicester Mercury: "I don't see any reason to put timescales on it. The fact we've gained promotion certainly helps our situation.

"The players have put an awful lot of hard work, effort and commitment into the season. I'm sure as a group, they'll want to go to the next level now.

"We have had speculation here throughout the season. We have a number of players where questions are continually being asked about their contract situation.

"There was always an element of whether it was going to be destabilising or not.

"For the players, it has turned out very positively.

"It's an ongoing process for those players and, in some ways, it has galvanised the squad, they have a common goal.

"We have been able to manage through that, and what gives you the opportunity to do that is results. If they aren't very good, then those potential distractions can be more intrusive."
