Leicester are expected to announce the signing of midfielder Dennis Praet from Sampdoria for £18m.
The Foxes are confident the paperwork required to confirm the deal was filed with the Premier League well before the 5pm deadline on Thursday.
Praet had been linked with a possible move to AC Milan and Valencia but he looks set to complete a move to the King Power Stadium, with the Belgian midfielder having arrived at Leicester’s training complex on Thursday morning for his medical.
The 25-year-old joined Sampdoria from Anderlecht in 2016 for a fee of £9.2m, and played 105 times in all competitions for the Genoa-based club.
