Nigel Pearson's squad are already assured of a £5m windfall after securing Premier League survival with the 0-0 draw at Sunderland.

And the bonus will be increased by an extra million if they finish 14th or above - an incentive which was agreed before the start of the season.

Leicester are guaranteed 14th place if they beat QPR and the money will be divided between the squad, guaranteeing first-team regulars over £315,000 each.

Pearson is also likely to earn a substantial reward for guiding Leicester to safety, with six wins from their final eight games.
