Inter Milan are still waiting on the green light from Leicester City to complete the transfer of midfielder Stefano Sensi.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews.
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.
Inter Still Await Leicester City Green Light For Stefano Sensi Deal
As of yet, no final OK has come from Leicester, however.
The clubs have reached an agreement, and the documents are all ready for the transfer of Sensi to become official.
But Leicester have yet to return the signed documents to Inter, according to the Gazzetta.
Therefore, for now, Sensi remains an Inter player.
There is not much longer to go in the January transfer window.
Therefore, the time is now tight for a transfer to go ahead.
If Leicester are to give the go-ahead today, then the deal can still happen. Sensi can fly to England to complete his medicals and sign his contract to join the 2015-16 champions.
But otherwise, the 28-year-old will stay at Inter until the end of the season when his contract expires.
