Man City allow Iheanacho to join Leciester – on one condition


Kelechi Iheanacho is finally close to completing his protracted move to Leicester City.

The Nigerian found himself sidelined at Manchester City last season following the arrival of Gabriel Jesus, and he was already behind Sergio Aguero in the pecking order.

City have now accepted a £25million bid from the Foxes, reports the Telegraph, but they have insisted on inserting a buy-back clause into the deal.

If he does well in the East Midlands, City will be able to re-sign him for £50million.

The 20-year-old scored just seven goals in all competitions last season, but he found his game time severely limited by Pep Guardiola.

The same source claim Leicester have beaten off interest from Tottenham, Monaco, and West Ham to secure his signature.

The starlet remains highly-rated because of the impact he made in his first season with the Sky Blues.

Craig Shakespeare will add Iheanacho to an already impressive strike force of Jamie Vardy and Islam Slimani, though his arrival will cast further doubt on the future of forward Ahmed Musa.
