NFF congratulates Iheanacho on Leicester City move

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has sent a goodwill message to Super Eagles striker, Kelechi Iheanacho on joining national team teammates, Ahmed Musa and Wilfred Ndidi at Leicester City.

Iheanacho was confirmed as Leicester City player on Thursday after completing his five-year-deal move from Manchester City believed to be worth £25 million.

Following his move to the 2915/2016 Premier League champions, the NFF wrote on their verified Twitter handle: ‎”Best of luck to Kelechi Iheanacho who has joined the Nigerian family at Leicester City.”

Iheanacho could make his unofficial debut for Leicester in today’s (Friday) pre-season friendly game against Bundesliga club Borussia Monchengladbach.

While at Manchester City, Iheanacho made 46 appearances, scoring 12 goals.
He was an unused substitute for Manchester City when the Guardiola’s side beat Liverpool on penalties to lift the 2016 League Cup.
