Kelechi Iheanacho Set To Join Newcastle United

Iheanacho Join Newcastle United

Premier League side, Leicester City are reportedly ready to sell Super Eagles forward Kelechi Iheanacho when the January 2019 transfer window opens.

The Super Eagles striker has only tasted 19 minutes of football this season in the Premier League and the Foxes are now considering selling him next year.

Guardian UK reports that Leicester City chiefs will be willing to send Iheanacho on loan in January until the end of the season or out-rightly sell him.

Before joining Leicester City, Kelechi Iheanacho scored 21 goals in 64 league and cup games for Manchester City.

But Jamie Vardy's excellent form at the club has blocked his chances of getting regular playing time at the Foxes.

Iheanacho has now been linked with a move to Newcastle United who are also looking for reinforcement in January.

Since Perez and Salomon Rondon left Newcastle, the Toon have struggled to hit the back of the net scoring only five Premier League goals this season.
