‘Super Eagles Kelechi Iheanacho Might Be Available For Sell In January’- Leicester City Boss Puel Says
Leicester City manager, Claude Puel, has hinted at the possibility of selling Nigeria star Kelechi Iheanacho four weeks before the winter transfer market opens for business.
The Foxes have six strikers in the first team consisting of Iheanacho, Vardy, Ahmed Musa, Slimani, Okazaki and Ulloa, and the former Man City starlet has found game time hard to come by after making only two starts in the Premier League from a possible fifteen.
Speaking to Leicester Mercury, Puel said: “Kelechi had an injury and for the moment, we have competition.
“I am happy with Jamie for example. Kelechi or other players cannot play on the side.
“It’s difficult for them, but for me also to manage all these players because we have six strikers so there is no place for all the players.”
Iheanacho penned a five-year contract with Leicester City in the summer for a fee in the region of 25 million pounds.
