Leicester City striker Yann Kermorgant has been offered a two and a half year contract to remain with the club, according to sources close to the player.

The Frenchman initially joined the Foxes on a short-term contract until January, and has made only made five first team appearances for the first team this season, two of them in the starting lineup.

But Pearson has clearly seen enough in training to extend the forward’s current deal with the club.

Kermorgant could be lined up as a possible successor to Steve Howard, who has fallen out of favour at the Walkers Stadium in recent weeks. Last year’s player of the year has not found the back of the net this season, and currently finds himself residing on the bench for the Foxes.

The deal is expected to be completed by Monday, as Kermorgant and his representatives mull over the offer.
