Deal close: Leicester set to sign Ghanaian midfielder this week

ranieriThe Leicester City fans who are lounging around in the stalls around the Tavern have had plenty to shout about this season, despite their recent draw with struggling Aston Villa, and they might have something else to get excited about.

The Leicester Mercury reports that the Foxes have have agreed a deal for the transfer of Daniel Amartey.

Reports in Denmark claim that the Foxes are set to enter into negotiations personally with the FC Copenhagen midfielder regarding a switch to the King Power Stadium and there have been some raised voices amongst Leicester supporters.

The 21-year old is currently plying his trade in midfield, but started his career as a central defender and remains capable of playing there.

Leicester have reportedly seen a £5 million bid accepted and the move is expected to be completed this week, so long as Amartey manages to receive a work permit and pass his medical.

Our landlord has informed us that the Ghana international is widely considered to be one of the best midfield players in Danish football.

Should he make the move, Amartey would mark the second Leicester signing this month following the £3.75 million purchase of winger Demarai Gray from Birmingham City, with both players deemed to be promising players for the future.

It is believed that Ranieri attempted to sign Amartey last summer, although there were concerns that he would not be eligible for a work permit at the time.

However, Leicester appear to have finally got their man as concerns over a work permit seem to have subsided as Amartey is now an established player in the Ghana national team.

Leicester fans, are you glad to have finally signed Amartey? Let us know in the comments below!
