According to RMC reporter Loic Tanzi, St. Etienne defender Fofana has undergone a medical examination in Leicester City.
Saint-Etienne confirmed on Tuesday local time that they have reached an agreement with Leicester City on the transfer of Fofana.
Now reports claim that Fofana has only formally signed a contract with Leicester City, and the two parties will sign the contract for five years.
Fofana renewed his contract with Saint-Etienne in April this year until the summer of 2024. He was also rumored to be a signing target for AC Milan and West Ham this summer.
Fofana has played 4 times in the Ligue 1 this season, and he has helped Saint-Etienne in the first 3 appearances.
