Thomas is out of contract at Coventry, and although the 20-year-old remains training with the Sky Blues it appears the Welsh starlet has been holding out for a move away from the club that oversaw his rise to senior football.
Coventry manager Mark Robins had offered Thomas a new deal at the Ricoh Arena, but the young midfielder opted to stall on the deal, considering his options.
After a deal has supposedly been agreed between Coventry and Leicester it is believed that the compensation fee will be "roughly £450k plus add-ons."
However, if either of the sides are unable to agree on a fee for Thomas, the fee will go on to be decided by a tribunal.
