Iheanacho undergoing his medical

Nigerian footballer, Kelechi Iheanacho, is close to completing his move to Leicester City after undergoing his medical with the former Premier League champions.

The 20-year-old striker fell out of favour at Manchester City following the arrival Gabriel Jesus in January.

Jesus has since established his place in the Man. City squad and is sometimes even chosen ahead of Sergio Aguero.

Iheanacho joined Man. City in January 2014 and started out with the academy side but was unable to play in England until February 2015 due to work permit issues.

He finally made his competitive debut for the club in August 2015 against Watford and scored his first goal the following month – coming on for Wilfried Bony in the final minute and scoring the winner against Crystal Palace.

Iheanacho went on to score 12 Premier League goals in 46 appearances for Man. City and will cost Leicester City up to £25m.

He will join up with compatriots, Ahmed Musa and Wilfred Ndidi, at the King Power Stadium.
