Eriksson hints at permanent swoops

Eriksson hints at permanent swoops

Leicester manager Sven-Goran Eriksson has hinted he could be tempted to entice the club's trio of loanees to the club on a permanent basis.

Curtis Davies, Kyle Naughton and Greg Cunningham have all impressed during their short spells with the club, and Eriksson has been delighted with what he has seen from his Premier League imports.

"By the way they have been playing we should sign all of them," he said.

"But let's see. January is far away so let's see how they are doing then. There will be even more difficult games in the future."

Manchester City left back Cunningham is highly rated at Eastlands however, and would be an unlikely capture for the ambitious City chief.

Kyle Naughton on the other could well be available after just one appearance in a Tottenham shirt, but the high fee paid to Sheffield United back last year may well boost the club's asking price to unrealistic levels.

Aston Villa's Curtis Davies would arguably be the biggest coup of the three having been on the England fringes not so long back, but the centre back's useful performances in a Leicester shirt may force Gerard Houllier into rethinking his plans for the 25-year-old.

Players such as Bruno Berner, Michael Morrison and Jack Hobbs have found their first team places stripped as a result of Eriksson's captures, but the Swede has insisted that every man has his role to play this season.

"When you take in new players the competition increases," said Eriksson. "It is more difficult, but I always tell them it is up to them to show me I have made the wrong decision.

"They must show that in every training session and every time they play.

"The back line has been very good recently so, of course, it is not easy. But the season is so long, and Hobbs and Morrison will play a lot of games, I am sure about that.

"But we need all these players. The season is very long with many games, there are yellow and red cards, and they all have a part to play. They will play."
