Kelechi Iheanacho has signed a new deal with Manchester City that will keep him at the club until 2021.

The Nigeria international has been rewarded for his exploits during a standout 2015-16 campaign, in which he scored 14 goals in just 11 starts in all competitions.

“Striker Kelechi Iheanacho has signed a new two-year contract extension with City,” the club announced yesterday.

“The 19-year-old Nigeria international, who scored 14 times in all competitions last season, is one of the game’s finest young forwards and will now stay with the Club until at least 2021.”

Iheanacho told the club’s official website: “I can’t express how I’m feeling. I’m very happy to sign my new deal for this club, I’m excited.”

“I just need to keep working hard and express my feelings on the pitch, and work really well and do great things for the team. I’m happy and I appreciate everything the club has done for me so far at this point so I really need to help and work for them as well.”
