Kelechi Iheanacho has completed his move from Manchester City to Leicester City for £25 million according to sources.

The £25m 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.

“It feels good and I’m happy to be part of this team,” Iheanacho told Leicester’s web site. “I know the ambition of the team and speaking with the manager, he let me know what I need to do — to help the team achieve what they want. I was convinced and I’m happy to be here.”
