Michael Golding is being tipped to join Leicester City from Chelsea in a deal being struck separately to Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall's £30 million move to Stamford Bridge.

England youth ace Golding, aged 18, has been on Chelsea's books for six years and made his senior debut in the FA Cup in January. He was only on the pitch for nine minutes but came close to scoring and setting up a goal.

He has captained England and Chelsea at junior level and he was described by the Evening Standard earlier this year as "an attacking midfielder who possesses good leadership skills" while his pen pic for England's under-17s Euros squad last winter said: "One of three brothers in professional clubs’ set-ups, Golding is another who can play in multiple positions and has been very consistent this season."

The move comes following a major breakthrough in talks between Leicester and Cheslea over midfielder Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, aged 25. The Leicester star is believed to be heading to London for a medical ahead of a £30 million move that could solve the club's struggles to comply with profit and sustainability rules.

It is claimed that the Golding negotiations are separate to the Dewsbury-Hall deal.

Leicester are believed to have had a £40m black hole they needed to fill before the June 30 deadline for this accounting period and £10m from Chelsea as compensation for Enzo Maresca and his coaching staff plus this seemingly imminent agreement for Dewsbury-Hall could see them into the black.
