Iheanacho extends his contract with Leicester until 2024

(Reuters) – Leicester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho has signed a new contract keeping him at the club until 2024, the Premier League side announced on Saturday.

The Nigeria international has scored 32 goals in 117 appearances in all competitions for Leicester after arriving from Manchester City in 2017.

“It’s been a great time here,” Iheanacho told the club’s website “It hasn’t been easy, but there are a lot of … nice people and they make me feel comfortable and welcome from the moment I walk in.”

Leicester, third in the table with 56 points from 29 games, host leaders Manchester City later on Saturday.
