Leicester New Favourites to Sign Iheanacho


Leicester City are the new favourites to sign Kelechi Iheanacho after West Ham United dropped out of the race to sign the Manchester City striker.

West Ham were close to agreeing a £25m deal to sign the Nigerian forward but have decided to end their interest.

Leicester remain in talks to sign Iheanacho, but any proposed deal could not be agreed until he returns from holiday.

Iheanacho has been told he can leave City this summer and he could now become Leicester’s third summer signing – after Harry Maguire and Vicente Iborra.
