The transfer of midfielder Stefano Sensi from Inter Milan to Leciester City may not happen before the end of the transfer window after all.

This according to Italian news outlet, who report that the 28-year-old may end up back in training with the Nerazzurri tomorrow.

In recent days, it has looked all but inevitable that Sensi would be wearing the Leicester shirt.

The Foxes have been in negotiations with Inter for the former Sassuolo midfielder’s transfer for much of the month of January.

And by all accounts, the two clubs have come to an agreement on the terms of a deal.

Sensi would join Leicester on an initial paid loan deal worth €500,000. Then, at the end of the season, the Foxes would sign the 28-year-old permanently for a fee of €2 million.

Sensi was part of the Inter squad for Sunday’s trip to Tuscany to face Fiorentina.

Part of the reason for this was that, with other midfielders in the team, it was important to have another player in the position even if just to “make up the numbers.”

But the expectation was certainly that Sensi would be completing a move to Fiorentina shortly afterwards.

Stefano Sensi Move From Inter To Fiorentina Could Fall Through

However, things no longer look so obvious.

With just a couple days left in the January transfer window, the time is running out. And there is no green light for Sensi to join Leicester as of yet.

The reason, according to the Gazzetta, is that Leicester are yet to return all the signed documents regarding the Italian international’s transfer to Inter.

That would obviously be a necessary step. And without that, Sensi will not fly to England to complete his move to Leicester.

Should the documents arrive in a timely manner, then Sensi will make the trip to the East Midlands. The 28-year-old will undergo his medicals and then sign his contract.

But on the other hand, if not, then Sensi will be in training tomorrow with the rest of the Inter squad.

And the timeline could cause the deal to fall through.

In that case, Sensi would stay at the Nerazzurri for the remaining five months of his contract.

One way or the other, Sensi’s future for the next few months won’t change Inter’s plans.

The Nerazzurri are willing to sell Sensi for a fee this month. And they would have no plans of signing a replacement.

Therefore, if Sensi stays, it will not prevent Inter from making any signings that they would have otherwise.
