Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare has said the signing of Kelechi Iheanacho is a great addition for the side.

Iheanacho joined Leicester City from Manchester City for 25 million pounds on a five-year deal.

Shakespeare said the club has been tracking the progress of the 20-year-old, who he said is enormously talented.

“It’s a great signing for us. Kelechi is an enormously talented player that has shown a huge amount of promise at every level in which he’s played.

“We’ve tracked his progress for some time, so we know how much quality he’ll bring to the squad. He’s young, he’s hungry, he’s ready for the next stage of his development and I’m delighted that will be with Leicester City.”

Leicester secured Iheanacho's signature ahead of a number of interested parties, with Tottenham, West Ham United and Monaco all showing some interest.

The Nigerian joins Harry Maguire, Vicente Iborra and Eldin Jakupovic as Leicester's latest summer signing.
