Leicester Have Quietly Completed One Of The Signings Of The Season

Since Leicester shocked the world in 2016, the story of the Leicester squad has been one of disintegration: N'Golo Kanté high-tailed it to Chelsea, while Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez had their heads turned before training a knife on Claudio Ranieri's back.


But ahead of next season, with Craig Shakespeare in charge for the full season, they are putting together a stronger squad, and tonight have completed one of the most intriguing signings of the season.

They have announced the permanent signing of Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho. City have let him go for a fee in the region of £25 million and one small catch: they have reportedly agreed a buy-back clause for twice that price.

Iheanacho is only 20, yet has a fine goal record in the Premier League: he has scored 12 goals in 46 league appearances, and 21 in 64 games overall. Considering that many of these came as a substitute, and that Iheanacho was a teenager up to October last, Leicester are partnering Jamie Vardy with a striker of enormous potential.
