If feels like it’s been grumbling on for a bloody age, but Kelechi Iheanacho’s protracted move from Man City to Leicester City looks like it’s finally entering the end stages.

The deal is said to be worth around £25million with a buy-back clause chucked in to semi-ring-fence (Man) City’s investment.

Whether the wrangling is responsible for dragging out his Leicester move this sodding long, we can only speculate.
