Nigeria International Kelechi Iheanacho has put pen to paper on a new deal tying him to Manchester City till the summer of 2021.

His new contract according to reports comes with a significant rise in his wages, putting to end speculations about his future at Manchester City following the arrival of Pep Guardiola this summer.

His contract extension is a show of faith from the new manager, who has been impressed with the Nigerian teen and has so far preferred him ahead of the likes of Wilfred Bony and Samir Nasri.

19 year old Iheanacho took his chances last season under former manager Manuel Pelligrini by scoring 14 goals in all competition in his debut season at the Etihad.

So far, he has been made to play second fiddle to the trio of Raheem Sterling, Sergio Kun Aguero and Nolito in the two competitive games they have played so far.
