Eriksson confident over loanee extensions
Leicester manager Sven-Goran Eriksson says he is confident the club will be able to extend the loan spells of Kyle Naughton and Greg Cunningham until the end of the season.
The pair have been with the Foxes since Eriksson took over the reins at the Walkers Stadium, becoming ever-presents in the Swede's rejuvenated side.
"Greg Cunningham, almost for sure, will stay for the rest of the season," Eriksson declared.
"I have spoken to Greg and spoken to Roberto Mancini, and both of them are happy. It is only a question between the clubs, but I can't foresee a problem. That will happen almost for sure.
"In January, I expect Kyle Naughton's loan to become a season-long one as well."
Eriksson is also confident of landing Aston Villa centre back Curtis Davies until the end of the campaign, but admitted that an offer from a bigger club may tempt the 25-year-old elsewhere.
"Curtis wants to wait until January, but I wouldn't be surprised if we get him as well. It all depends whether a big club comes in to buy him. We have to wait and see on that one."
The trio have impressed during their spells with the club so far, keeping last season's ever-present figures on the City bench.
Meanwhile, on-loan Benfica centre back Miguel Vitor will be available for Leicester's league match against Doncaster on Saturday after recovering from injury.
