Former Premier League champions Leicester City have reportedly agreed to sign Hull City defender Harry Maguire.
According to the reports coming from BBC Radio, the Foxes are about to splash £12 million in a deal that could potentially rise to £17 million with add-ons and performance-relates bonuses.
The player himself will be putting pen to paper on a five-year deal with the King Power Stadium outfit. Maguire will be earning £80,000 a week at the Foxes.
The 24-year-old defender has already completed his medical and is about to be confirmed on Thursday.
Hull City were reluctant to sell Maguire, but the player was in the final year of his contract with the relegated club and he wanted to remain in the top flight.
Leicester City initially attempted to sign West Browmich Albion defender Jonhy Evans, but their £10 million bid was rejected. Leicester City wasted to time in approaching Maguire and went on to wrap up a deal quite quickly.
Harry Maguire appeared in 24 Premier League outings last season with the Tigers and even scored two goals during that time.
