Leo Ulloa is set to complete his record-breaking move to Leicester City today – as Albion look to add to their squad for the new season.
Ulloa undergoes a medical in the East Midlands this morning before putting pen to paper on a deal which could net the Seagulls £10 million.
His transfer will be a record fee for the Foxes and the biggest sum ever received by the Seagulls.
A representative for Ulloa said his off-field team had “a few details to finalise” last night or today but expected the transfer to go through with no hitches.
Albion have been linked with Fulham goalkeeper David Stockdale as they plan for the new campaign.
Stockdale, who has a year left on his contract, travelled to Crawley for the Cottagers’ pre-season friendly on Saturday.
But he did not get playing time.
Cottagers boss Felix Magath declined to comment on the 28-year-old keeper’s future after the game.
A source close to Fulham said it would be a surprise if Stockdale were to leave.
Chris O’Grady, the striker signed from Barnsley for an undisclosed fee believed to be about £500,000, links up with his new Albion colleagues for the first time in training today.
Meanwhile, trialist George Cole, a midfielder from Chelsea, scored for Albion’s development squad as they drew 1-1 in a friendly with Stoke City on Saturday.
Trialist defenders Ibou Touray and Danny Pappoe, released recently by Everton and Chelsea respectively, both played for the Seagulls.
