Leicester agree a deal to sign Sevilla star

Leicester agree a deal to sign Sevilla star

The Spanish side that admitted that a deal was agreed between the two clubs and that now 29-year-old Iborra will make the move to the Midlands club, where he will see his wages doubled in size.

Once a deal is concluded, the midfielder will be allowed to return to Sevilla to bid a public farewell to fans after four seasons with the team.

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.

Sevilla have confirmed that a deal has been agreed for Vicente Iborra to join Leicester City this summer. Iborra has always shown an exemplary behavior and has earned the unanimous love and respect of all Sevillians.

Leicester fans, will Iborra be a good addition to the midfield?

"Three Europa Leagues, 172 games and 30 goals are the numbers of a legend that will be remembered for his leadership on and off of the pitch, as well as by the dignity that he gave to the captains armband every time he wore it".

What qualities will Iborra bring to Leicester?

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.

Leicester's opening bid of £10.5million was rebuffed by the Spaniards but new boss Craig Shakespeare was determined to get his man and eventually upped his offer.
