Leicester City’s reported move for Nice midfielder Nampalys Mendy has taken another step closer to happening with the player visiting the training ground for a tour.

The likes of the Daily Mail report that the 24 year old was at the club earlier in the week for a tour, and mini meet and greet following our offer being accepted and contract terms being negotiated.

It’s expected that the deal for the £13million rated player will be concluded later this week and that he will be announced next week as the season nears.

The Mail suggest West Ham made a late offer for him on Monday, but that didn’t gain any traction given our long standing interest in him, and they also say that the medical was completed in his visit, and personal terms are nigh on completed now.

Then it’s international clearance to pass but that’s not expected to be an issue.

Whether this now sees a step up in interest for N’Golo Kante we’ll have to wait and see, but either way with many comparisons to Kante in terms of style of play, we seem to have natural cover now.
