Kelechi Iheanacho closing in on Leicester exit

Kelechi Iheanacho closing in on Leicester exit

Kelechi Iheanacho's time at Leicester looks to have come to an end following the club's return to the Premier League.

The Foxes secured automatic promotion back to the English top-flight, following their relegation last season, by winning the Championship ahead of fellow promoted side Ipswich.

Iheanacho, however, looks to be moving on after rarely featuring for the side under head coach Enzo Maresca, especially since his return from the Africa Cup of Nations.

The 27-year-old Nigerian striker played just 26 games in all competitions this season, scoring six goals and creating three.

Following the club's final game of the season, a 2-0 defeat to Blackburn Rovers, having already secured the title, Iheanacho displayed a t-shirt with the words: "We've got history." You will miss ME once I'm gone."

Iheanacho has been linked to a move to Aston Villa, having reportedly rejected a new deal from the Foxes.

And speaking after Saturday's game, where the player was brought on for 12 minutes at the end of the tie, he was reported by Nigeriasoccernet as saying: "I feel good, I feel great, it's a massive achievement so I'm really happy.

"I don't know (what is next) for now, I'm still a Leicester player."
