Iheanacho leaves Super Eagles camp to seal £25m West Ham transfer deal

Manchester City forward, Kelechi Iheanacho, has left the Super Eagles’ training camp in Paris to England.

Iheanacho, 21 has been the subject of a £25 million bid from London club, West Ham, and there are reports that he is set to undergo medicals at the said club.

He is however expected back the Paris camp before the Super Eagles international friendly match with Togo in Paris on Tuesday.

Leicester have however shown interest amid the uncertainty of the future of Riyad Mahrez at the King Power Stadium.

Other clubs including Southampton and Everton are also reportedly interested.

Iheanacho has struggled to play under Pep Guardiola, having only started five Premier League games all season.

The Nigerian has previously spoken about his need to play to build his confidence.

Despite that limited opportunity Iheanacho still managed seven goals and three assists, with those strikes coming at an average rate of one every 128 minutes. 

However, Manchester City want a buy-back clause inserted in the contract for Iheanacho if they are to sell him.

City do not want to be left in the same situation as Chelsea, who allowed Romelu Lukaku to leave without inserting an option to buy back the striker at a set price.
