Leicester agree deal in principle with Man City for Kelechi Iheanacho

Leicester City have agreed a deal in principle with Manchester City for the transfer of striker Kelechi Iheanacho, according to Sky sources.

The fee could rise to £25m for the 20-year-old but there are a number of contractual issues still to address – including whether or not there will be a buy-back clause, allowing Iheanacho to return to the Etihad for a fixed price in the future.

Sources also understand that Iheanacho has to resolve a dispute over image rights with his former agent before any new contract can be signed.

We understand there is a willingness on all sides to get the deal done, and the player himself is keen on a switch to King Power Stadium.
