Deal in principle for Demarai Gray (Leicester City) to join Bayer Leverkusen

Sky Germany report this evening that Bayer Leverkusen have an agreement in principle to sign Demarai Gray from Premier League side Leicester City.

Negotiations have been intense over the past week. The 24-year-old, who has been frozen out by Brendan Rodgers, has just six-months remaining on his contract at Leicester City and is free to leave in the current transfer window.

Gray has agreed personal terms with Bayer Leverkusen, who have been adamant on adding a wide player to their squad as competition for Leon Bailey, Moussa Diaby and Karim Bellarabi.

Per reports earlier in the January window, B04 will pay a fee between €2m & €3m for the Englishman, who was a member of Claudio Ranieri’s Premier League winning squad in 2016.

Gray would be Peter Bosz’s third signing of the transfer window after Timothy Fosu-Mensah joined from Manchester United for €2m and Jeremie Frimpong arrived from Scottish side Celtic on a 4.5-year contract.
