Leicester midfielder Adrien Silva set for Monaco loan

Leicester City are close to thrashing out a deal with Monaco for Adrien Silva.

The Portuguese midfielder, who was at Monaco for the second half of last season, is re-joining them on loan.

Leicester were hoping to sell him permanently, but the Ligue 1 club were only interested in another loan.

Sky Sports says a loan fee is agreed and the player is set to travel to Monaco to finalise his contract.

The move must be complete by September 2, which leaves plenty of time for ironing out the final details.

Silva will join Islam Slimani as loanees from Leicester at Monaco.
