Foxes to sign Aussie

Leicester City manager Craig Levein has raided former club Hearts for a third player in a week, with Patrick Kisnorbo agreeing a pre-contract with the Championship side.

Levein has lured Mark de Vries and Alan Maybury to The Walkers Stadium this week and is now set to add Kisnorbo to his squad in the summer.

Kisnorbo is out of contract at Hearts at the end of the season and had been discussing a fresh deal at Tynecastle.

But the uncertain future for The Jambos has prompted the Australia international to accept the overtures from south of the border.

The midfielder has concurred on terms with The Foxes and his agent Dave McPherson expects the deal to be signed within the next week.

"The offer between Patrick and Leicester has been verbally agreed and he'll likely be signing the final contract at some point this week, though as things stand he'll be at Hearts until the summer," McPherson told Scotland on Sunday.

"Craig has been keen to play things as fair as he possibly can with Hearts, he's even faxed them today to let them know exactly what's going on, which is a lot more than other managers would do.

"Right now, the situation's not looking great at Hearts and the Leicester offer is simply not something he can turn down at this point in time."

Kisnorbo joined Hearts in the summer of 2003 from South Melbourne and has made 64 appearances for the Edinburgh club.
