Leicester City has confirmed the exit of Kelechi Iheanacho from the club after seven years

The club announced the departure of the Nigerian in a statement on its website on Friday.

The 27-year-old was released by the Foxes following the expiration of his contract.

The Midland club also added that talks are still ongoing with Wilfred Ndidi to extend his stay at the Kings Power stadium.

Iheanacho joined Leicester from Manchester City in 2017 on a five-year deal. He then signed an improved three-year contract with the club in 2021.

“Also leaving Filbert Way is Kelechi Iheanacho, bringing to an end his seven-year stint in the East Midlands,” the statement reads.

“Signing from Manchester City in August 2017, the popular forward has scored 61 goals in Leicester colours, including the winner against his former club in the FA Community Shield final at Wembley in August 2021.”

Iheanacho’s most productive season with the Foxes was the 2020/21 campaign when he scored 19 goals in 39 matches. He also scooped one English Premier League (EPL) player of the month that season.
