Sky Sports understands Leicester City are closing in on the signings of Manchester United duo Ritchie De Laet and Matty James.
Leicester boss Nigel Pearson is keen to reshape his squad after missing out on promotion this season and he has lined up deals for defender De Laet and midfielder James.
United are ready to let the duo move on as they are well down the pecking order in Sir Alex Ferguson's first-team plans.
De Laet joined United from Stoke in January 2009 and has had loan spells at Sheffield United, Preston, Portsmouth and Norwich since, while starting only three league games for the Red Devils.
Highly-rated midfielder James has come through the United ranks, but failed to break into the first-team at Old Trafford.
The duo have been given permission to hold talks with Leicester as Pearson looks to persuade them to move to the King Power Stadium.
