Iheanacho close to Leicester move

Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho is close to making a £25m move to Leicester City, English tabloids report.

The 20-year-old Super Eagles forward is in advanced talks with the former England champions and is thought to be keen to make the switch.

If the deal pulls through, Iheanacho would join his compatriots Wilfred Ndidi and Ahmed Musa at the King Power Stadium.

Iheanacho has scored 21 goals in 64 games in all competitions since making his debut for Manchester City in 2015.

He has been rarely given a start under Pep Guardiola, starting only five Premier League matches last season after the Spaniard took over from Manuel Pellegrini as manager.

Last August, Iheanacho signed a new contract with the club until 2021, but saw his playing time limited by the January arrival of Brazil forward Gabriel Jesus.
