Leicester Manchester City News Transfer Rumours

According to a variety of sources, Nigerian forward Kelechi Iheanacho is having a medical ahead of £25 million switch from Manchester City to Leicester City. Following the arrival of Pep Guardiola last summer, the 20-year-old has seen his playing opportunities decrease following the arrival of Gabriel Jesus.

The forward only made six starting appearances for the Citizens last summer, whilst also appearing as a substitute on 20 occasions in all competitions. It is believed that the academy player wanted to leave the club because of his lack of opportunities, with former Premier League winners Leicester City winning the race.

The Manchester City manager also revealed that the club have inserted a buy-back option into the deal, so a return back to the Etihad could be on the cards in future. In an interview, the Spaniard went on to say that; “We believe he deserves to play at that age, that’s why we decided what’s best.”
