Kelechi Iheanacho’s move from Manchester City to Leicester City is as good as done according to the Vice Chairman of Leicester City Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.
Srivaddhanaprabha confirmed the deal for the 20 year old in an interview with BBC Leicester Radio monitored by Owngoalnigeria.com London based correspondent Michael James.
” A fee has been agreed, only the medical to go, and it could be as early as Friday”, the chairman said.
The fee according to our sources is in the region of £19m with several add-ons set to inflate the fee further to around 29 million pounds, with City having the option to buy him back for a fee based on several variables.
Iheanacho will sign a four year deal if he passes the medical, and it will bring to an end an unhappy spell at Manchester City last season, where he was made to play second fiddle to the likes of Sergio Kun Aguero and Gabriel Jesus by manager Pep Guardiola.
