Director of football Terry Robinson has left Leicester but manager Nigel Pearson retains the faith of the club despite a slump in results.

Press Association Sport understands the decision is based purely on footballing reasons and Robinson appears to have paid the price for an ineffective summer transfer window.

Of the 10 arrivals in the summer only three – Esteban Cambiasso, Danny Simpson and Ben Hamer – started Saturday’s defeat to Manchester City, and Hamer was only in the side because of injury to Kasper Schmeichel.

Robinson was appointed by the Foxes in July 2013 with a remit to “to provide strategic input to the club’s football operations at all levels, driving the consistent implementation of the club’s football philosophy”.

Leicester have not won since beating Manchester United on September 21 and have lost eight of the last nine matches as they plummetted to the bottom of the Premier League.

However, despite that alarming downward spiral it is understood Pearson’s job is not in any immediate danger.
