Iheanacho on Tuesday, August 1 had his medicals at Belvoir Drive ahead of his move to Leicester City which will be completed in the next 24 hours.

The 20-year-old leaves Manchester City after three and half years with the club.

He joined as an academy player in January 2014 and was promoted to the first team in August 2015.

His first senior goal for City came at the start of the 2015/2016 season against Crystal Palace. He went on to score 14 times that year.

He started last season brightly under Pep Guardiola but later lost his place in the team following the signing of Gabriel Jesus.

He scored seven goals last season.
