Kelechi Iheanacho set for Leicester medical today ahead of £25m move from Manchester City

Kelechi Iheanacho is poised to complete his protracted move from Manchester City to Leicester City today, with the 20-year-old expected to undergo a medical later.

Iheanacho will move to the Foxes in a deal worth £25million with City successfully negotiating a buy-back clause that could lead to the promising striker returning to the Etihad in future.

Leicester boss Craig Shakespeare has been in search of a new attacker and sees the clinical Iheanacho as an ideal strike partner for Jamie Vardy next season.

Despite breaking into the first team under Manuel Pellegrini, Iheanacho has struggled for game time since the arrival of Pep Guardiola, and the signing of Gabriel Jesus pushed him further down the pecking order.
