WESLEY FOFANA will undergo his medical with Chelsea today before completing a £70million plus transfer to West London.
The defender agreed personal terms with the Blues a few weeks ago.
But his move to Thomas Tuchel's side was delayed by Leicester who initially refused to let Fofana leave.
Leicester's resilience nearly caused Chelsea to pull the plug on the deal.
However, the Foxes finally agreed to sell the 21-year-old for £70m plus hefty add-ons on Friday night.
Fofana was left out of the Foxes squad for their 2-1 loss to his new employers Chelsea on Saturday afternoon.
Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers banished the French ace to train with the U23 squad ahead of the game because he missed a practice session.
He was also given a frosty send-off by Foxes fans who sang an X-rated chant labelling him a "w***er" during the match as his exit loomed.
But Fofana was shown love by soon-to-be team-mate Reece James before the clash.

James appeared to welcome Fofana to the club by copying his haircut with included a heart and squiggly lines.
And James won't have to wait much longer to link up with Fofana as he's set to be unveiled by the Blues once his medical is complete today, the Daily Mail reported.
Providing his medical test goes well, Fofana will remain at Stamford Bridge until 2028.
Fofana will shore up a new-look defence for Chelsea along with new fellow new centre backs Kalidou Koulibaly and Marc Cucurella.
