The Foxes ended a run of back-to-back defeats on Wednesday with a goalless draw to second-placed Hull at the KC Stadium.

Pearson said: "As always I don't join in with the speculation until any business is done.

"If the right players are available and we can do it then yes (we will do business). I'm not going to bring players in for the sake of it.

"We've got players who are capable of scoring goals at the club. At the moment we've not been taking our chances.

"We've created quite a few chances in the past few games and not taken them.

"If the right players are available and we can do the deals then maybe we'll do them.

"Clearly we would like to be scoring. Sometimes you have to go through spells like that. If the players keep working hard we'll come through that."
