Leicester manager Sven-Goran Eriksson has been assured he will be given more money to spend in January should he wish to add to his squad.

The Swede brought in 12 new players over the summer, reportedly spending in the region of £15million. The club's Thai owners expect Eriksson to guide Leicester to promotion this season but the Foxes have made an indifferent start to the campaign and sit 10th in the Championship after collecting eight points from the opening six games.

Apichet Raksriaksorn, son of City owner and chairman Vichai Raksriaksorn, told the Leicester Mercury: "Sven has all the say on what and who he wants. He has assembled a strong squad and signed some quality players and I believe it will be a successful and exciting season.""

He added: "However, if he feels he needs to add to it, we will back him during the next transfer window with whatever funds and resources he needs.

"I expect us to challenge for the Championship title and be in the Premier League next season.

"If we can't get up to the top tier soon, at least within the next few seasons, we will view that as a big failure. For me, it will be very disappointing if it doesn't happen this season."
