Leicester boost as Sampdoria leave Dennis Praet out squad

Leicester City are closing on a deal for Sampdoria midfielder Dennis Praet.

Sky Italia says Praet has not been included in Sampdoria's squad for their pre-season friendly against Spezia tonight amid interest from Leicester.

The Foxes and Sampdoria are still some way apart in their valuation of midfielder Praet, with the Italian club wanting around £24m for the Belgian international.

Leicester have had a long-standing interest in Praet, but have always shied away from Sampdoria's asking price.

Negotiations are ongoing between the two clubs.
