Hibernian central defender Sol Bamba has passed a medical ahead of a proposed move to Leicester City.

The 25-year-old Ivory Coast international is out of contract at the end of the season and is known to be keen on a move to English football.

And it appears likely that France-born Bamba will leave Easter Road for the Walkers Stadium within days.

Hibs manager Colin Colderwood told BBC Scotland: "There's some sort of agreement between the clubs."

Bamba was not even on the bench as Hibs took to the field for the New Year's Eve Edinburgh derby against Hearts.

"We have allowed him to go down there and hold discussions," explained Calderwood.
Liam Miller, the former Celtic, Manchester United and Sunderland midfielder who has been linked with Hearts, returned to the Hibs starting line-up at Tynecastle.

But Monday's 2-2 draw with Dundee United, when Bamba was to blame for the visitors' opening goal before Hibs staged a two-goal fightback, could be the defender's last game for the Edinburgh club.

Bamba joined Hearts in 2004 from Dunfermline Athletic, having spent two years with the Fife club.

He had started his career with Paris Saint-Germain but moved to Dunfermline after failing to break into the French top-flight club's first team.

Before joining Hibs, Bamba appeared close to a move to Leicester's Championship rivals, Watford, having spent a trial spell at Vicarage Road.

He has since been linked with Fulham and Rennes.

Bamba has become a regular in the Ivory Coast squad since being chosen for the 2008 Olympic Games and played at the World Cup in South Africa.

However, he was ordered to train with Hibs' youth team by manager John Hughes after returning to Easter Road later than expected following his summer international commitments.

Hughes has since been succeeded by Colin Calderwood, who appears set to lose a player who has become a key member of his defence, despite Hibs losing one and winning only nine of their 10 games since he took charge.

Asked whether he himself had room for manoeuvre in the January transfer market, Calderwood said: "Plenty."


..

If you think it should be then merge into the Transfer rumour thread if there is one.
