Iheanacho, 20, put pen to paper on a five-year contract on Thursday, having undergone a medical at the club’s training ground earlier in the week.

After seeing his progress at Manchester City stall with a lack of first-team opportunities, Kelechi Iheanacho looks an ideal fit for Craig Shakespeare’s revitalised Leicester City.

The deal represents quite a coup for new manager Craig Shakespeare and Iheanacho, who was also a reported target for West Ham earlier this summer, could make his Leicester debut in Friday’s friendly against Borussia Monchengladbach at the King Power Stadium.
