Pearson Chasing Former Charge

After rumours last month that Foxes striker Matt Fryatt might be on his way to East Midlands rivals Forest on loan, it has now emerged that former Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson could be tempted to lure the Nuneaton-born forward to Hull City.

Pearson has made no attempt to hide his admiration for Fryatt, who scored two hat-tricks in succession as the Foxes won promotion back to the Championship under the Tigers manager two seasons ago. With Fryatt seemingly out of favour with now-Leicester boss Sven Goran Eriksson, it seems likely he may well be looking for a new challenge when the transfer window opens in a fortnight's time.

Fryatt is one of two strikers on the radar of ex-Newcastle caretaker manager Pearson, with Leicester apparently rejecting bids in the region of £2-3million for the ex-Walsall striker.

Meanwhile Eriksson's efforts to strengthen his Foxes squad have taken a turn for the worse as LA Galaxy have blocked the former England coach's efforts to lure David Beckham back to England. Eriksson has stated he is unlikely to continue chasing Beckham, who has said he would like a loan move back to England but would not play in the Premier League except for former club Manchester United.
