Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson has confirmed that Max Gradel will be returning to the Walkers after his loan spell ends at Leeds United.
Leeds boss Simon Grayson had hoped to tie up Gradel on a permanent deal after the 21-year-old impressed in his short loan deal, but Pearson has said he is not for sale.
Pearson said: 'I've made the decision. It's no different to what I said weeks ago. His loan's up and he's coming back.'
Gradel has struggled to hold down a first team place since last season, but his impact for Leeds in League One this year has certainly given Pearson food for thought.
The Ivorian has found the net three times for Grayson's side this season, predominantly coming off of the bench as an impact player.
