Leicester City Sign Kelechi Iheanacho For £25 million
Kelechi Iheanacho on Tuesday evening completed a £25 million move from Manchester City to Leicester City after passing a medical, sources have confirmed to KweséESPN.
The fee makes him the most expensive Nigerian player ever, displacing Odion Ighalo when he signed for Chinese club Changchun Yatai for £20m in January.
It is also the second highest African transfer fee this season behind Mohamed Salah’s £34.3m move from Roma to Liverpool.
The transfer, which has been in the offing for weeks, was held up by legal issues over his image rights with his former agents. But sources close to the player confirmed to KweséESPN that after passing his medical on Tuesday, the player signed a five-year contract with the Foxes.
However, an announcement is only expected within the next 24-48 hours as the club tidy up legal details in respect of his former representatives.
