Leicester close to sealing deal for Lille midfielder Soumare

Lille midfielder Boubakary Soumare is on the brink of signing of Leicester City.

Sky Sports says Leicester are close to making Soumare their first summer signing with a deal even possible this week.

The Foxes are confident they have an agreement with both player and club to complete the transfer ahead of pre-season, with the fee expected to be in the region of £23million.

Leicester were following Soumare for most of last season and knew there was a deal to be done, as the newly crowned French champions need to sell players and Soumare, a France Under-21 international, has only one year left on his contract.
