Iheanacho’s Leicester Medical Confirmed As Picture Emerges

Nigeria forward Kelechi Iheanacho will soon complete his move to Leicester City from Manchester City, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

A picture emerged on Twitter on Tuesday showing the 20-year-old having his medical tests in a Leicester City shirt.

There were reports earlier in the day that there had been a breakthrough in negotiations for the move with the Super Eagles star scheduled to have his medical.

It now appears that that medical has been done with just some paperwork left to complete the switch believed to be worth around £25 million.

Iheanacho joined Manchester City after excelling at the FIFA U-17 World Cup in 2013 and was one of the club's best players in the 2015/2016 despite having limited playing time under Manuel Pellegrini.

However, the arrival of Pep Guardiola last season and the addition of Brazil striker Gabriel Jesus meant Iheanacho had much less playing time and he struggled but his quality was never in doubt.

Iheanacho was linked with a move to West Ham and other Premier League clubs before Leicester, the 2016 English champions who parade Nigerians Ahmed Musa and Wilfred Ndidi, stepped in.
