Super Eagles forward Kelechi Iheanacho was not part of the Manchester City squad that travelled to China earlier on Tuesday on a pre-season tour, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
Pep Guardiola named a 32-man travelling party for the tour to Germany and China but left out Iheanacho who had visa issues entering China.
Iheanacho who was blocked from featuring for Nigeria at the Rio Olympics could still make the squad to China for the games against Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund in Beijing and Shenzhen if his application is granted.
The 19-year-old who scored 12 goals in all competitions last term is expected to be given the chance to establish himself in the team and the tour was going to be his chance to make an impression on City’s new manager.
Sergio Aguero, David Silva, Joe Hart and Raheem Sterling are among those who will meet up with the squad in China.
