Skysports.com understands Leicester midfielder Richie Wellens is poised to sign a new deal.
The talented playmaker is believed to have agreed a new three-and-a-half-year deal with his existing contract having just over a year to run.
Wellens has virtually been an ever-present for Leicester this season and is regarded as one of the best players in the Championship.
A number of Premier League clubs are believed to be keeping tabs on Wellens and Leicester have moved to tie him down to a new long-term deal.
Foxes boss Sven Goran Eriksson is a big fan of Wellens and sees him as a key player in his plans at the Walkers Stadium.
Wellens is now set to follow team-mate Paul Gallagher in pledging his future to the club.
