Manchester City and Nigerian forward Kelechi Iheanacho will in the next 72 hours undergo a medical at Leicester City after a fee which could potentially rise to £29m was agreed for his transfer.
The 20 year old have already agreed personal terms on a five year deal which will see him earn twice his current pay at Man City, hence making him the highest earning Nigerian player in Europe.
Iheanacho is expected to bid farewell to his City team-mates this weekend, bringing to an end an unhappy one year spell at the Etihad under coach Pep Guardiola after his breakthrough two seasons ago.
As exclusively reported by this portal, the forward has been promised a new role by Leicester City coach Craig Shakespeare, who plans to play the forward in his favourite position behind the main striker.
His imminent move to Leicester City will bring the number of Nigerian players at the club to three with Wilfred Ndidi who joined the team in January, and Ahmed Musa who joined them last summer completing the list.
