Leicester are set to sign Robbie Neilson after agreeing personal terms with the Hearts captain, according to widespread reports.

The Foxes appear poised to push through a transfer as they begin to prepare for life back in the Championship next season.

It is understood the League One champions have spoken with Neilson and struck an agreement over a deal.

Neilson has been with Hearts for nearly 13 years and is currently the club's longest serving player after coming through the youth ranks.

But the right-back's future has become a subject of conjecture in recent months with his contract expiring later this summer.

Neilson, now 28, announced earlier in May that he would be holding talks with Hearts to try and sort something out.

However, it now seems the SPL game against Celtic on Sunday will be his final appearance in a Hearts shirt.
