New Leicester manager Nigel Pearson believes success between now and January will determine how much money he will have to spend in the transfer window.

Pearson returned to the Foxes hot seat on Wednesday just 17 months after walking away from the previous City regime, with chairman Vichai Raksriaksorn now in charge following the takeover of Thai-based consortium Asia Football Investments in August 2010.

Pearson's predecessor Sven-Goran Eriksson was given huge financial backing, including a spending spree in the region of £12million over the summer, only to be sacked 12 months on after a solid if unspectacular start to this campaign. And Pearson said: "There's already been questions about how much money is available? And I think, how long is a piece of string? I think that will be governed by results between now and the transfer window."
