It's a Knockaert for Foxes

2 August 2012

Leicester have agreed a deal to sign promising French midfielder Anthony Knockaert from Guingamp.

Knockaert still has a year remaining on his deal at Guingamp but is expected to finalise a move to the King Power Stadium on a three-year deal in the next 24 hours, subject to the Football League granting approval.

The 20-year-old enjoyed an impressive last season with Guingamp and was linked with a switch to Newcastle back in April.

Knockaert will become the Foxes' sixth summer signing as manager Nigel Pearson aims to put together a squad capable of challenging for promotion to the Premier League.
