Iheanacho signs 2-year contract extension with Manchester City

By Femi Adefioye, Lagos

Nigerian born Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho has signed a two-year contract extension with the club.

The 19-year-old scored 14 times last season even though 25 of his 36 appearances were as a substitute.

New manager Pep Guardiola has rewarded him with a long-term deal on much improved terms.

“Kelechi is a natural goalscorer. I knew about him before, but I’ve been really impressed with him since I arrived,” Guardiola said.

“I like his personality, his attitude, his ability – we hope to help him reach the highest level and to realise his full potential.”

Iheanacho was City’s third-highest scorer in all competitions, behind Sergio Aguero and Kevin de Bruyne.

The Nigerian was a late substitute in Saturday’s 2-1 win over Sunderland.
