Eriksson in striker hunt

Published Add your comment

Sven-Goran Eriksson is certain he will sign another striker - but the Leicester manager may not be able to get his man before the npower Championship opener at Coventry on Saturday.

Bristol City's Nicky Maynard remains one target, despite the Foxes already having had three bids for the 24-year-old turned down, as is North Korea striker Jong Tae Se.

"We are working on different targets, I am not sure if something will happen before Saturday or not, but sooner or later it will happen," said the Swede.

"Jong is one on a long list. I know him.

"He played for North Korea in the World Cup.

"He is a good striker but he is only one name on a long, long list."
