Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson has taken defender Sean St Ledger off the transfer list.

The former Preston stopper was dropped for the Boxing Day clash against Ipswich, and his reaction to the decision disappointed Pearson.

St Ledger appeared to be on his way out of the club, and ironically, Ipswich were the favourites to sign him.

However, his displays over the last two games have convinced the Foxes chief that the Republic of Ireland international has a future with the play-off hopefuls.

"He is fine and there is no rift," Pearson told the Leicester Mercury.

"I am delighted with his performances. Is he off the transfer list? Yes, why not!"
