Reports on BBC Sport confirm that the Scottish international, who has 37 caps, will undergo a medical before completing his move to the King Power Stadium for a fee believed to be just under £1m.

Maloney joined Wigan from Celtic in 2011, and his contract is set to expire in the summer. He has been linked with a return to the Scottish champions or a move to Major League Soccer, but was thought to prefer to extend his stay in English football.

As the source explains, Leicester have already completed the transfer of Chelsea goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer this month and have also agreed a club record fee of £9m for FC Rijeka’s Croatia striker Andrej Kramaric.
