West Brom close in on £12million Leicester City midfielder

West Bromwich Albion are closing in on the signing of Leicester City midfielder Jeffrey Schlupp according to reports.

Sky Sports claim that West Brom have tabled an improved £12million bid for the winger, after seeing a £9million rejected earlier this week.

The 23-year old has subsequently been removed from the Champions Matchday squad ahead of their opening Premier League game against Hull City.

The Ghana international made 24 appearances in the clubs title winning season but has been told he may need to leave the club to get more first team action, despite signing a new four-year deal last season.

West Brom however have only made one summer signing so far, with Matt Phillips joining the Baggies from Queens Park Rangers earlier on in the summer.
