Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson confirmed there has been “no progress” on signing Esteban Cambiasso but is still hopeful of completing a deal. There had been reports earlier this week that the Argentinian had all but completed his move to the King Power Stadium on a two-year deal, but Pearson said there had been no progress since the weekend. “I don’t think it’s right to talk about players publically when we have not been able to achieve many deals. The only one that is in the public domain and has been for a couple of weeks now is the Cambiasso one. We’ve not really made too much progress on that as we stand but I am still hopeful something could be done. Unfortunately at times it is quite a complicated process. It appears to be representatives coming out of the woodwork so it is very much a case of getting to the bottom of who represents who and trying to achieve the goal, and that is to add players to the squad. It may not be football issues. It is slightly more complicated than I’m prepared to be discuss.”
