Manchester City signs Nigerian wonderkid Iheanacho on pre-contract

Nigerian wonderkid Kelechi Iheanacho, who won African Young Player of the Year 2013 at the just concluded Glo/CAF African Player of the Year 2013, has signed a pre-contract with Manchester City and will arrive at the Etihad in October 2014, his father confirmed to Brila FM

“He can’t sign but what he has done is sign a pre-contract with Manchester City pending his 18th birthday,” Iheanacho’s father James said at the CAF Awards yesterday

Goal.com reports that a £250,000 transfer fee has been agreed for the 17 year old, who won the Golden Ball at the Under-17 World Cup in the UAE last year, with a further £300,000 being paid to the Taye Academy in Owerri and £350,000 to his father.
