Manager Nigel Pearson says Leicester are struggling to finalise deals to sign players in the transfer window.
The Foxes are bottom of the Premier League and are eager to strengthen.
"Any potential targets are proving to be difficult. It is very much a case of stalemate," Pearson said.
"The temptation in the window is to do business you may not always do, but we will try to do what's right for where we are at the moment."
