Leicester manager Sven Goran Eriksson believes it would be fairer on players to get rid of the transfer window and have it so that clubs can do business all year round.

The former England boss brought in striker Jermaine Beckford from Everton for £2.5m on deadline day last week.

The Foxes were also said to have made bids for Rangers forward Nicica Jelavic, while a fourth attempt to prise away Bristol City's Nicky Maynard was rejected.

But Eriksson admits that a lot of the deals done on the last day smack of desperation and he doubts whether a transfer window is the best system.

"You do wonder at times if it is right to have a window," he said.

"It was easier when it was open all the time and perhaps fairer for the players.

"I am sure much of the business being done on the last day is a little bit desperate and that is not right. I think it was better before, but then I am old!"
