Foxes' Morrison Having Owls Medical

Leicester City defender Michael Morrison is all set for a move to Wednesday with reports indicating he's having a medical in S6 today.

The former Cambridge United man is understood to be at Hillsborough today and is ready to complete a move from the Walkers Stadium, according to BBC Radio Leicester's Ian Stringer.

Morrison has been keen for a move away from Leicester ever since Foxes boss Sven-Goran Eriksson failed to guarantee him a starting role with the npower Championship side.

The fee is understood to be around the 250,000 mark but the deal is expected to be undisclosed.

The deal is expected to go through within the next 24 hours and Morrison will follow Reda Johnson as the second defender to arrive at Wednesday since the January transfer window opened.

Looks like we're getting a whole new defence! Good signing by all accounts though so fingers crossed it'll go through with no problems

He looks a good defender when ive seen him for Leicester.Still cant believe we are buying players for money again-it seems so long since we had any to spend.

So what's the defense going to be now then...? Morrison Johnson Purse Buxton would be my choice but we have more options so im sure opinion will be divided.

Im actually quite excited with us buying two young prospects, despite the fact iv never seen either play. If the fee's reported are to be believed all we have done is re-invest the tudgay fee. Agree with Aston-owl, another midfielder and striker please.

another good signing we have good competiton for cb places now. i agree with leons gloves i prefer beevers, thought he was a cracking player when partnered with wood, so he is pair with one of these new players i feel he will get back to his best. main thing he needs to improve on is his distribution. midfielder(maybe another winger) and another striker, then we can push on!

I think these two signings may see Beevers used as cover tbh? These guys are clearly championship quality which is what we've needed all season and Beevers has played in the championship and never really stood out? Buxton and Spur at full back and that's a pretty solid championship never mind league 1 defence! Certainly need a couple of midfielders though I think I barely rate any of the ones we have apart from Coke and Miller! Any of the other can go in my opinion, especially JJ! Another striker to add competion for places and I think that would do us for the season!

Carbone's Padawan, nothing seen in concrete, just the usual reported nonsense. This says 250,000 for morrison and iv seen various reports for johnson from 150,000 to 300,000, seems to depend on what website you look at.

best defence would be buxton(otsemebor has gone down in my expextations after huddersfield) johnson morrison jones(think jones is better than spurr). would like charlie austin but think he is going up to championship level

Apparently about 250,000 for Morrison and don't know about Johnson but Noone went to Brighton for about 300,000 and he was their star winger so I'd guess not near as much for a defender. Probably about 100,000ish.

Isn't it great to be actually signing players other people want using cold hard cash again rather than freebies nobody else wants. How about tying up Mellor on a permanent deal and bringing in a decent right back, another midfielder and maybe another striker. Promotion is a must this season so if AI doesn't deliver after MM backs him in the transfer window a p45 may be coming his way.

in regards to a new right back, id like to see that nolan lad we had on loan from preston, thought he was quite impressive during his loan period. the centre of midfield is my big issue, need somebody who will make runs past the strikers every so often, i would have liked to see coke do it a little more than he has.
