Transfer round-up: Leicester agree Iborra deal

Leicester have held talks over a move for Sevilla captain Vicente Iborra valued at £15million

Leicester City have agreed a deal to sign Sevilla captain Vincente Iborra the Spanish club have announced. The 29 year-old Spanish midfielder will move to the Foxes in a reported £12 million deal.

But the move to Wearside collapsed in the final days of the summer window and now the midfielder will fly to Leicester tomorrow for a medical and sign a four-year contract.

It is thought that he will join up at the side later this week, with speculation still surfacing that Riyad Mahrez will be making a move out of the 2015/16 Premier League champions, with North London side Arsenal looming.

Sevilla have confirmed the deal is close to being completed and will allow the player who spent four years at the Roman Sanchez Pizjuan stadium to say goodbye to the fans.

With that fresh in his mind Iborra will be attracted to Leicester, but giving up UCL action with Sevilla for a likely midtable scrap with Leicester seems like a bit of an odd decision for a player who has won three Europa League titles and has driven Sevilla on from midfield in recent seasons.

Sevilla rewarded Iborra with an improved contract last September, tying him to the club until June 2020. Once all fitness checks are out of the way, he will return to Sevilla to publicly bid fans farewell.

West Ham United were also understood to be interested in the three-time Europa League victor.

If they do, it would be the second bit of transfer business the Foxes have completed, having already signed Hull City defender Harry Maguire, with Craig Shakespeare determined to turn Leicester into a top half side in the Premier League.
