Porto fullback Ricardo Pereira scheduled for Leicester medical

Porto fullback Ricardo Pereira is due to undergo a Leicester City medical.

The Leicester Mercury says Pereira has flown to the UK to undergo his medical and complete his £22million move to Leicester City.

The 24-year-old Portugal international is expected to complete his move from Porto in the next couple of days as Claude Puel begins his squad rebuilding ahead of the new season.

City wanted to get the deal done quickly before Pereira disappears with Portugal to prepare for the World Cup in Russia.

Pereira will become Puel's first signing of the summer transfer window.
