Craig Shakespeare Wants Kelechi Iheanacho


IheLeicester City coach Craig Shakespeare has said that he is pissed at not being able to finalise a deal for Manchester City youngster Kelechi Iheanacho.

Leicester City are close to the signing of Iheanacho who is leaving Manchester City in search of regular chances.

The possibility of a buy-back clause and the unsettled dispute between two agents of Iheanacho, have been cited as the reason for the delay in the deal.

Leicester City manager Shakespeare is however hopeful that a deal will be sealed soon for the 20-year-old striker.

“I’m hoping so, but I am like every other manager at the moment. I think we all find it frustrating but it is the current market,” Shakespeare told Sky Sports after their pre-season 0-0 draw with MK Dons on Friday night.

“You saw with the Harry Maguire one, we got that done quick – when he is in the door we can announce it.

“At the moment, of course, we are interested in players as most of the Premier League is, but you can see that clubs won’t really talk about it until they are over the line.”
