According to our colleagues at Ouest France, Leicester City are closing in on the signing of SM Caen midfielder Ngolo Kanté.
The player could join the Foxes in the coming hours, after Kanté gave an agreement in principle to join Claudio Ranieri’s side. The contours of a provisional contract are believed to have been agreed.
SM Caen President Fortin has confirmed to our colleagues that a fee agreement is virtually agreed, with minor details still to fix. The fee is believed to be around the €8m plus €1m bonus mark. West Ham’s dithering in terms of an offer and general lack of other viable options has made Kanté agree to join Leicester.
