Kelechi Iheanacho complete Leicester City switch

Leicester City have completed the signing of Kelechi Iheanacho.

The 20-year-old has penned a five-year contract at the King Power Stadium for a undisclosed fee, with reports suggesting the Foxes have forked out £25million for the Nigeria striker.

City are also thought to have insisted upon a buy-back clause for Iheanacho, who is considered as one of the brightest striking prospects in football but was unlikely to have received the regular football he craved at the Etihad Stadium.

Speaking to Leicester’s official website, Iheanacho said: “It feels good and I’m happy to be part of this team.

“I know the ambition of the team and speaking with the manager, he let me know what I need to do – to help the team achieve what they want. I was convinced and I’m happy to be here.

“I was happy speaking with the manager, knowing what the team wants. It gives me more confidence that I will fit in this team and hopefully I’ll achieve a lot.”
