Leicester have completed the signing of Kelechi Iheanacho from Manchester City for an undisclosed fee.

The 20-year-old striker put pen to paper on a five-year contract on Thursday, having undergone a medical at the club's training ground earlier in the week.

The deal represents quite a coup for new manager Craig Shakespeare and Iheanacho, who was also a reported target for West Ham earlier this summer, could make his Leicester debut in Friday's friendly against Borussia Monchengladbach at the King Power Stadium.

Iheanacho told to LCFC TV: "It feels good and I'm happy to be part of this team. 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."
