Leicester City Set to Grab Bargain £15m Deal for Man City Starlet as Citizens Eye Buy-Back Clause
Leicester City look set to complete the signing of Manchester City youngster Kelechi Iheanacho in the coming days - with new reports claiming that the Foxes may have to pay as little as £15m up front.

Iheanacho, 20, proved to be one of the Premier League’s most clinical goal scorers last season. He had the best goal to game ratio within the league with a goal every 70 minutes on average - particularly impressive when considering a lack of game time stopping him from getting into any kind of rhythm in the team.
Iheancho’s move is expected to be completed by the end of the week, where the Nigerian international will later join the rest of the Leicester squad in Hong Kong for their pre-season tour.
