The player will fly to England this week, and although the deal is believed to be close, he still has to complete a medical as well as agree personal terms with the 2015/16 Premier League champions.

Iborra will become Leicester's second major signing of the summer after their capture of Hull City centre-back Harry Maguire, who joined for an initial fee of £12m, potentially rising to £17m.

Leicester City have struck a deal for Sevilla captain Vicente Iborra with the midfielder set to move to the King Power Stadium for a £15million fee.

Once a deal is concluded, Iborra will be allowed to return to Sevilla to bid a public farewell to fans.

"If everything turns out as expected, Vicente Iborra will leave Nervión after four seasons full of compromise and will, bearing the armband as the first captain in his last season".

Saina crashes out of Australia Open quarters
It was a closely-fought encounter, as the two players, who know all about each other's game, went full tilt into the match. However, he could not hold the higher ranked player as Kidambi extended his lead to 11-9 at the break of the second game.

The defensive midfielder, who stands at 6ft 3in tall, has lifted the Europa League on three occasions during his time at Sevilla and scored seven goals last season. Iborra has always shown an exemplary behavior and has earned the unanimous love and respect of all Sevillians.

Leicester missed N'Golo Kante during the 2016-17 season and will hope Iborra can fill the void left by the Frenchman after he left for Chelsea, winning another Premier League title with the Blues.

What qualities will Iborra bring to Leicester?

The Foxes are aiming to rebuild under Craig Shakespeare after he was handed the managers job on a permanent position following an impressive finish to last season which secured their status in the PL, and a top 10 finish in the PL plus a cup run would be a good campaign next season.
