FA approve Kramaric deal

London - Leicester are set to sign Croatia striker Andrej Kramaric after the Football Association on Monday gave their support to his work permit application.

City have agreed a reported fee of £9.5 million to sign Kramaric from Rijeka, but his three-and-a-half-year contract could only be signed once the permit has been granted.

The 23-year-old's lack of international experience, with only four caps to his name, meant a permit was not automatically granted.

But having played for Croatia from under-14 through to under-21 level and recently broken into the senior squad and scored goals, victory on appeal is likely - especially with the FA's backing.

"Leicester City Football Club has today (Monday) received a Governing Body Endorsement from the Football Association to support the work permit application of Andrej Kramaric," a Leicester statement read.

"The FA endorsement allows the club to apply for clearance from the UK Border Agency. Once a work permit is granted, Andrej's move to Leicester City from Croatian side HNK Rijeka will be made official."
