Nigerian international Kelechi Iheanacho has signed a new two-year deal tying him to the club until 2021.

The 19-year-old Nigerian scored 14 goals in his breakthrough campaign at the Etihad Stadium last season, and now looks set for a pivotal role under new boss Pep Guardiola.

Iheanacho told City’s official website, “I can’t express how I’m feeling now, 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.”

The youngster was a late substitute in Saturday’s 2-1 win over Sunderland.

“Kelechi is a natural goal-scorer,” said Guardiola.

“I knew about him before, but I’ve been really impressed with him since I arrived.

“I like his personality, his attitude, his ability: we hope to help him reach the highest level and to realise his full potential.”
