Super Eagles of Nigeria and Manchester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho has spoken out about his future at the Etihad amidst rumours of a potential move to West Ham.
20 year old Iheanacho is in the camp of the senior team of Nigeria preparing for Saturday AFCON 2019 Qualifiers against South Africa , but his future has continued to dominate the news both in the local and foreign press.
Known for his goal scoring abilities, he has fallen down the pecking order at Manchester City this season following the emergence of Gabriel Jesus, and despite signing a new deal last summer, he looks certain to depart the club this summer.
However in an interview with the BBC World Service Iheanacho said he is not aware of talks with any team on a move away from City despite talks about a potential move to West Ham being held back by issues bordering on buy back clause fee.
” I don’t know about that news though but all I know is am still at Man City, I’m still a City player so all the news that is going on and on, this team wants to buy you and this team wants to buy you, actually I don’t know about all those news”, Iheanacho said.
“Because as we finished the season everyone went on holiday. So I think that not only me has not been playing, the manager rotates the players, the squad, so that everyone can have game time.
“So I know I should be complaining that I’m not having game time but as well as some other players who are not having game time. So what if everyone starts complaining ?, we are one squad so everyone is not going to play at the same time”.
