Leicester City agree deal to sign Sevilla’s Iborra

Sevilla have announced the sale of captain Vicente Iborra, who will join Leicester City this summer.

The 29-year-old midfielder moved to the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in 2013 after impressing with Levante.

Having made a total of 172 appearances for the Andalusians, helping them to three Europa League titles – the midfielder went on to become club captain.

But his future at the club has now changed with former Premier League champions Leicester City having agreed terms on a deal.

Reports in Spanish press had claimed that the Spanish midfielder was linked with a move to West Ham United, West Bromwich Albion and Watford – but a move to the Foxes has now been completed.

Leicester, who knocked Sevilla out of the Champions League last season will pay a fee in the region of €12m.

Iborra will add an extra dimension to Leicester’s midfield, who was born in the Valencian community of Moncada – joined Levante as a young boy before commencing through the various youth ranks and making 188 first team appearances.

In a statement on their website, the Spanish club said they would be holding a goodbye ceremony for the midfielder.
