Drinkwater arrived at the club’s training ground to finalise the switch around 10.00pm on Thursday – just an hour before the transfer window slammed shut.

That was believed to be an offer of £27m plus a further £5m in add-ons.

But they are believed to have upped the ante again in order to persuade Leicester to cash in on the 27-year-old.

Drinkwater said: “It has been a long journey to get here but I am very happy and am looking forward to helping the club win more trophies.”

Sporting Lisbon’s Andre Silva is the man they want but that deal is taking time to finalise.
