Leicester City agree £5m deal Ghana star as they set sights on the title

Leicester City are closing in on their second deal of the January transfer window in the shape of Ghana star Daniel Amartey, according to BBC Sport.

The Foxes signed talented teenage winger Demarai Gray from Birmingham City earlier this month and are understood to have agreed a fee for the 21-year old.

BBC Radio Leicester claim the deal is valued at around £5m and £6m, with FC Copenhagen confirming only a few ‘minor details’ are to be resolved.

Able to play in both defence or attack, he is joining a side that has taken the Premier League by storm this season.

Despite only retaining Premier League survival late on last season, the King Power Stadium outfit sit joint top of the table, level on points with Arsenal.

Capped six times at international level, he had also been linked with a switch to Liverpool due to the good form shown in Denmark over recent seasons.
