Super Eagles and English football club, Leicester City striker, Kelechi Iheanacho has signed a new four year contract with Leicester City that will keep him at the King Power Stadium until 2024.
The striker who made League’s player of the month recently, was handed a new deal following his impressive performances for the side this season, scoring 12 goals and providing five assists in 28 appearances across all competitions.
He was previously earning £60,000 weekly but his new deal sees him earn £100,000 per week (about N52.6m)
Iheanacho has been at the club since the summer of 2017 when he joined from Manchester City.
“I can’t express how I’m feeling. I’m excited, I’m happy, I’m overwhelmed! It’s a great moment and I’m happy that Leicester City gave me a new contract,” Iheanacho told the club website on Saturday, April 3.
“It’s been a great time here. It’s not been easy, but there’s a lot of people here that are good people, great people to work with.
“They are nice people and they make me feel comfortable and welcome since I came in.
“It’s been really great being here. It’s like a family. I’m happy being here and hopefully I can stay here many more years.”
