London: Leicester City have received endorsement from the Football Association (FA) to support a work permit application for Croatian international Andrej Kramaric, the Premier League side announced on Monday.
The 23-year-old HNK Rijeka forward, who has scored 28 goals for club and country this season, is reported to have passed a medical and signed for a club-record fee of 9 million pounds ($13.66 million) according to British media.
"The FA endorsement allows the club to apply for clearance from the UK Border Agency. Once a work permit is granted, Andrej`s move to Leicester City from Croatian side HNK Rijeka will be made official," the club said in a statement.
Bottom-of-the-table Leicester have struggled since their return to the Premier League but have improved of late winning two and drawing one of their last three league games.
