Iheanacho Unveiled as Leicester City Player

 
 
Kelechi Iheanacho has officially been unveiled as a Leicester City player.
 
The Super Eagles forward has signed a five-year deal at the King Power Stadium and becomes Craig Shakespeare’s fourth signing ahead of the new season.
 
LEICESTER CITY ended this summer’s longest-running transfer saga when Kelechi Iheanacho finally completed his £25million move from Manchester City.
 
Foxes boss Craig Shakespeare’s dogged pursuit of the 20-year-old Nigerian strike sensation eventually paid off after his top summer signing target put pen-to-paper on a five-year-deal.

Leicester were always confident they were in pole position to land the lethal finisher, who has scored 21 times in 64 appearances for City.
 
But complex issues over the player’s image rights and a court case involving a former agent caused the move to drag on throughout the summer.
 
Now Iheanacho says he can’t wait to show what he can do in a Leicester shirt, with a speedy home debut in Friday’s friendly against Borussia Monchengladbach on the cards.
 
Iheanacho told LCFC TV: “It feels good to be part of this team. I know the ambition here and I know what I need to do to help the team achieve what they want.
 
“After speaking with the manager I was convinced and happy to be here. It gives me more confidence that I will fit in this team and hopefully I’ll achieve a lot.”
 
 
Iheanacho’s goal-scoring credentials are impeccable and he is the supreme penalty box poacher Shakespeare wanted to compliment Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez and Marc Albrighton.
