Sevilla confirm Vicente Iborra deal to Leicester City agreed

West Bromwich Albion and Sunderland have also watched Iborra, who helped Sevilla to a fourth-place finish in La Liga last season, but Leicester are now at the front of the queue.

The midfielder is now set to fly to the East Midlands to negotiate personal terms and complete a medical.

Once a deal is concluded, Iborra will be allowed to return to Sevilla to bid a public farewell to fans.

Sevilla's statement continued: 'If everything goes as expected, Vicente Iborra will leave after four seasons of delivery and commitment, wearing the armband as the captain in his last campaign.

He has already signed Harry Maguire, the central defender, for £17 million from Hull City and expressed an interest in Eldin Jakupovic, the Hull City goalkeeper. Iborra has always shown an exemplary behaviour and has earned the respect and affection from all the sevillistas.

Former Barcelona coach Luis Enrique, nor any of the coaching staff or hierarchy at the Camp Nou were invited. Well, there will be a giant screen streaming the proceedings outside the Rosario complex.

Iborra is a defensive midfielder who is powerful in the air and can control the tempo of a game. He is likely to compete with Nampalys Mendy for playing time alongside Wilfried Ndidi and Danny Drinkwater.

The player will travel to Leicester to complete a medical examination and sign his contract.

Leicester had first-hand experience of Iborra's qualities when they beat Sevilla in the Champions League 3-2 on aggregate last season.

What qualities will Iborra bring to Leicester?

Leicester's opening bid of £10.5million was rebuffed by the Spaniards but new boss Craig Shakespeare was determined to get his man and eventually upped his offer.
