West Ham submit bid for Kelechi Iheanacho with City demanding clause in any sale

West Ham have submitted an offer for young Manchester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho, who looks set to join the growing list of players leaving the Etihad this summer.

Considered to be the best West Ham news source around, @ExWHUemployee says a bid has been made for 20-year-old Iheanacho, who scored a penalty for Nigeria in a friendly against Corsica yesterday to earn them a 1-1 draw.

City want to ensure a Paul Pogba type situation doesn’t occur in future by including a buy-back clause in any deal to sell Iheanacho, who is subject to interest from a number of clubs across Europe.

There are some reports from Nigeria that Iheanacho has already flown back to England for a West Ham medical. And it does appear that is true.

There is also a possibility that other clubs could make offers for the Nigerian striker, who is expected to fetch £20 million or more when sold this summer.
