Kelechi Iheanacho

Super Eagles forward, Kelechi Iheanacho is set to make a loan move to Turkish giants Besiktas in January, reports claim.

The club are seeking a January loan move for Iheanacho, who is yet to make a league appearance for Leicester City this season.

The 23-year-old former Manchester City star has only played as a substitute for the Foxes in the Carabao Cup.

According to reports emanating from Turkey, Iheanacho will make the loan move when the transfer window opens in January, 2020.

Iheanacho linked up Leicester from Manchester in 2017 for around 25-million pounds but has struggled to make an impact or play regularly for the Brendan Rodgers’ team.

His lack of playing time has also affected his place in the national level as he failed to make Nigeria’s squad to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
