Transfer Window: Leicester City Agrees Fee For Daniel Amartey Of Copenhagen
FC Copenhagen have confirmed they have accepted a bid from Leicester City for midfielder Daniel Amartey.
The Ghana international has made 63 appearances since joining the Danish side in 2014 and will join the Premier League high-fliers pending an agreement of personal terms.
FC Copenhagen chief executive Anders Horsholt did not specify a figure but admitted the offer was too good to refuse.
“We cannot turn down a transfer of this size because, generally speaking, it is the best outcome for Copenhagen,” Horsholt said in a statement.
“We have been very happy to have Daniel here but it is part of our strategy, as a club and a company, to develop players to a level where they get so attractive that clubs from the biggest leagues will buy them for large sums of money.”
