Well we have bought Vicente Iborra according to multiple media sources reporting that his current club Sevilla have announced the deal is done, and Iborra WILL be a Leicester City player later this week subject to the paperwork and of course a medical. This looks like GREAT business to us… Why ?
Well Iborra is 29, the perfect age for a big and powerful midfielder… at 6ft3″ he is indeed BIG and Powerful. And he has bags and bags of experience, playing in and winning 3 Europa League finals, AND being captain of Sevilla last season as well.
He is more defensive as a midfielder, yet often has been thrown up front when a goal is needed and scored 7 goals last season.
The deal is reported to be done at around £12m and IBORRA is at the top of his game, so should hit the ground running. We hear he was impressed with the set up at Leicester City after our Champions League matches last season…
“top class signing for Leicester experience in abundance at the highest level for numerous years. captain of a side that dominated the Europa league and has excelled with then up the la liga table. big leader for our dressing room”
“This is the sort of signing we should of made last summer, I’m very impressed.”
“Could be a good signing but almost certainly spells the end of James and/or King… btw on another note does anyone know when the Leicester tickets for the Luton town and MK Dons friendlies are going to open?”
James Joseph O’Connor
“was a done deal for sunderland last year for 7.7m and fell through at the extreme last minute. wont believe this is true until leicester officially say its completed and i see him holding the shirt”
Shaun Alan Wright
“Why wouldn’t he want to sign for the up and coming most talked about club in Europe”
“Not too shabby. Back to back europa league winner with Sevilla. Brilliant signing”
“Good for the money just don’t know where he will fit in the team”
“Mendy, king, amartey, drinky, James, Ndiddi, Barnes… Mendy and James out? Barnes out on loan again?”
“Great signings so far, now let’s get a striker signed up”
