Images: Kelechi Iheanacho Joins Leicester City

Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho has joined fellow Premier League side Leicester City for a reported £25m. The deal reportedly includes a buy-back option.


The Nigerian forward joined Manchester City's Academy in January 2014 however, he had to wait another 19-months (August 2015) until he was included in a first-team matchday squad against West Bromwich Albion. It turned out he was an unused substitute.

Nineteen days later, he made his competitive debut, replacing Raheem Sterling for the final minute of a 2-0 home win against Watford.

He scored his first first-team goal on 12 September, 2015 replacing Wilfried Bony in the final minute in a 1-0 victory away to Crystal Palace.

Out of a total of 71 City appearances Kelechi, who turns 21 on the 3rd October has scored 26 times.

It is believed Kelechi has signed a five-year contract with the Foxes.

In addition, it is unlikely he will be involved in Friday's friendly against Borussia Monchengladbach at the King Power Stadium.


All the best Kelechi and good luck.
