Leicester City have completed a deal to sign Kelechi Iheanacho from Manchester City.

The Foxes are understood to have paid a fee of £25m to land the striker after agreeing a deal last month.

And Iheanacho is pleased to have finally made the move to join the 2015/16 champions.

“It feels good and I’m happy to be part of this team.” he said.

“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.” he added.

Foxes boss Craig Shakespeare spoke positively about the transfer as well.

“It’s a great signing for us.” he said.

”Kelechi is an enormously talented player that has shown a huge amount of promise at every level in which he’s played.

“We’ve tracked his progress for some time, so we know how much quality he’ll bring to the squad.

“He’s young, he’s hungry, he’s ready for the next stage of his development and I’m delighted that will be with Leicester City.” he finished.
