Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson has insisted that he will not enter contract talks with the club until the end of the season.

Despite already leading the Foxes to promotion, Pearson does not believe that it is the right time to discuss an extension to his current deal, which will expire in the summer.

"It will be done at the end of the season," Pearson told the Leicester Mercury.

"I don't want to get side-tracked by those sorts of issues. It hasn't been a huge problem for me. We will have to wait and see what happens on it.

"I certainly don't want to start talking about that now. We have three weeks of the season left and we want to enjoy them."

Leicester host Queens Park Rangers on Saturday afternoon.
