Late on Sunday evening, Levante EMV reported Vicente Iborra was set to train with Villarreal today, despite his transfer from Leicester City not yet being announced.
They explained the move was ‘already a fact’ and Iborra passed a medical with his new club on Saturday. The transfer is stated to be a loan until the end of the season with a compulsory purchase clause set at ‘around’ €10m.
All that was preventing an announcement was Leicester signing their end of the paperwork.
SuperDeporte, another Spanish newspaper from the region, had already reported on Saturday that the deal was done and Iborra had gone through the medical.
They said that once the deal is made permanent in the summer, the footballer will automatically switch to a contract lasting until June 2022.
