Leicester City to close £12m deal tomorrow after humbling Hull loss

West Bromwich Albion are set to complete the signing of Leicester City winger Jeffrey Schlupp, according to Sky Sports.

The 23-year old has long been touted as a target for the Baggies, who are understood to have lodged a £12m bid for the Ghana international.

While the Foxes are reportedly yet to give a formal response, the report claims the deal is expected to go through on Monday.

He made 24 appearances for the East Midlands club last season, one that shocked the footballing world by winning the Premier League title as rank outsiders.

Having developed through the club’s youth system, Claudio Ranieri is thought to have told him his best option may be to leave in order to land regular first-team football.

Battling for places with the likes of Riyad Mahrez and Marc Albrighton, the Ghanian utility man will find it difficult to impose himself on first-team proceedings.

Moving to the Hawthorns, he will become only their second summer signing, and the first since their Chinese takeover.
