Leicester to sign Sevilla midfielder Vicente Iborra after agreeing deal for £12million

Danny Drinkwater battles Sevilla's Vicente Iborra during their Champions League Round of 16 match at the King

Sevilla are set to lose captain Vicente Iborra to Leicester City after the Spanish side announced on Tuesday they had agreed to sell the midfielder to the former Premier League champions for a reported 14 million euros ($15.8 million).

Sevilla confirmed Iborra's impending Premier League move in a statement which also invited him to return for a public farewell with their supporters.

Iborra won three UEFA Europa League titles and scored 30 goals in 172 matches with the La Liga side. "Once the operation concludes, he will return to Seville to publicly bid farewell to the fans".

Iborra is also composed in possession, as demonstrated by the fact that he was successful with 82% of the passes that he attempted in La Liga last season.




Vicente Iborra has spent the last four years with Sevilla since joining from Levante in 2013.

Leicester have already signed centre back Harry Maguire from Hull City in a £17million move. The Foxes will hope to further strengthen to their squad before the end of the transfer window in a bid to improve their fortunes for the coming season. Having replaced the sacked Claudio Ranieri in February, Shakespeare will be hoping he can have Leicester challenging at the top end of the table this season.

The industrious midfielder was close to moving to England last season when Sunderland reportedly wanted to bring Iborra to the Stadium of Light and it looks like the 29-year-old could be set for a move to the British Isles after all.

However, the move could finally pave the way for the departure of Riyad Mahrez from the club.
