The planned medicals to pave the way for Kelechi Iheanacho to join Leicester City from Manchester City did not hold on Friday as widely expected.

Though Manchester City Boss, Pep Guardiola has not ruled out the Nigerian forward joining the Foxes, he has subtly stated that the 20-year old will stay on with the Citizens if the situation demands so.

"I think Kelechi is going to leave, for Leicester. I think so, but I don't want to say something wrong. If it doesn't happen he will be part of the group," the Spanish coach stated.

Leicester City are understood to be keen on Iheanacho, the former Premier League champion already have two Nigerian stars in Ahmed Musa and Wilfred Ndidi in their squad and will be glad to increase the number.
