Football star, Kelechi Iheanacho completed his £25 million move from Manchester City to Leicester City on Tuesday evening after passing a medical, according to online reports.The fee makes him the most expensive Nigerian player ever, displacing Odion Ighalo when he signed for Chinese club Changchun Yatai for £20m in January. It is also the second highest African transfer fee this season behind Mohamed Salah’s £34.3m move from Roma to Liverpool.Manchester City believe the 20-year old Nigerian has the potential to become a world-class goalscorer, but presently they are struggling to guarantee him regular first-team football. Having joined the City Academy as a 17-year-old, Iheanacho has played 46 games for the senior side over the past two seasons.Photo Credit: Getty
