The Leicester City squad returned to the club's Belvoir Drive training ground yesterday for fitness testing.

Manager Nigel Pearson and his staff put the players through their paces after their shorter-than-normal summer break to assess their condition ahead of the official start of preseason on Monday.

As well as running tests, the players' physical condition was assessed to ensure there had been no summer excesses.

Kasper Schmeichel and Sean St Ledger weren't there as they have been given more time off after their international exploits during the summer.

Jermaine Beckford was also absent as he is in talks with Bolton Wanderers over a transfer to the Reebok Stadium.

Some reports yesterday indicated the Trotters and Beckford were miles apart in their negotiations on personal terms, as the striker will have to accept a substantial pay cut.

The Mercury understands, however, that both parties are confident of reaching an agreement and the deal could be concluded by the weekend.

Other players who have been told they can join other clubs if the right offers come in, such as Paul Gallagher, Richie Wellens and Neil Danns, joined the rest of the squad for the fitness assessment.
