Cengiz Ünder is nearing an exit for Roma after three seasons.

Matteo De Santis of La Stampa reports that the Turkish attacker is nearing a move to Premier League side Leicester City on loan with an obligation to buy.

The winger is close to joining Brendan Rodgers’ side for a total of €28 million: €3 million for the loan and €25 million for the obligation to buy.

The Giallorossi have been keen to sell Ünder this summer after he lost his starting place last season under Paulo Fonseca.

The player’s former club, İstanbul Başakşehir, are entitled to 20% of any transfer fee that Roma earn from Ünder’s sale.
