Leicester City players plan to move to the new state-of-the-art facility near Seagrave at the end of June, ahead of pre-season training for their 2020-21 campaign.
Huge progress has been made at Leicester City's training ground as they bid to complete the build before the start of pre-season.
The roof has been placed on the indoor training centre at the heart of the £100m complex, while the main building, where the changing rooms and offices will be situated, is also taking shape.
The turf still needs to be laid on 12 full-size pitches around the 185-acre site in Seagrave, which is on schedule to be ready by the end of June, when City will move in for pre-season training ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.
