Kelechi Iheanacho is to have a medical at Leicester on Tuesday ahead of a £25m transfer from Manchester City, according to Sky sources.

Leicester City boss Craig Shakespeare had admitted he was hopeful of a deal to bring Iheanacho to the club last weekend.

Finalisation of the deal was reportedly being held up by contractual issues, including the possibility of a buy-back clause and a dispute over Iheanacho’s image rights.

Iheanacho featured 28 times for City last season, scoring seven goals.

However, he made just one start for City in 2017, with that appearance coming back on January 2 in the 2-1 win over Burnley.
