Chelsea verbally agree deal with Leicester for Fofana


Chelsea have reached a verbal agreement with Leicester over a fee for Wesley Fofana.

Sky Sports News has been told that the agreed fee is for £70m plus add-ons, but the detail of the structure of payments, and exact terms of add-ons are still to be decided.

However, the ultimate fee is unlikely to go beyond £75m. Personal terms between Fofana and Chelsea are expected to be agreed quickly and will not bring up any problems.

Leicester are now looking at possible replacements.

Brendan Rodgers confirmed on Thursday that Fofana, who missed last weekend's defeat to Southampton amid the speculation over his future, would also be unavailable for Saturday's trip to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea.
