Masilela off to Sweden with Leicester

Masilela has agreed terms of his year-long loan from Israeli champions Maccabi Haifa and will link up with new manager Sven-Goran Eriksson on the Foxes' pre-season tour to Sweden.    He will then undergo his medical and agent Mike Makaab is hopeful that the former Benoni United player can finally begin his career in England.   "Tsepo will be off to Sweden to meet his new team on Sunday and will do his medicals the next day," Makaab of ProSports International tells KickOff.com.   "If everything goes well then he will then fly to South Africa so we can complete his application for the work permit in the UK. Then hopefully he will be able to join up with the rest of the squad for pre-season training but I don't see any problems."   Former England boss Sven-Goran Eriksson is busy building a squad to be reckoned with as Leicester attempt to return to the Premier League for the first time since 2004.    He has already signed four players in the close season and is expected to sign several more before their last pre-season friendly against Jose Mourinho's Real Madrid on July 30.
