The Daily Express was reporting last night that Leicester City have won the race to sign Newcastle winger Wayne Routledge.
Wayne Routledge – moving to Leicester City?
Routledge has been pursued by Cardiff City and Nottingham Forest in the Championship over the last few days, and we thought he would be a great acquisition for any club looking to be promoted next seaosn.
But this morning Swansea City were in discussions with Newcastle over the transfer of the former QPR winger, but a fee had not been agreed.
If the Daily Express is correct, then former England manager Sven Eriksson has won the race to sign Routledge, and the fee is somewhere between £1.5M and £2M, depending on which reports you are willing to believe.
It will be an excellent move for Wayne, as he will get regular games next season, and Leicester must be one of the clubs favored to get promotion next season.
