Man City in no rush to offer Kelechi Iheanacho a new deal
Manchester City are in no hurry to offer rising star Kelechi Iheanacho a new contract.
The young Nigerian striker has forced his way into Pellegrini’s first-team squad.
And he made a stunning impact to score the winner for the Blues against Crystal Palace in the last minute of this month’s Premier League clash, just moments after going on from the bench.
Reports have suggested that the Blues are urgently seeking to tie the young prospect down with an improved deal at the Etihad.
There are suggestions that Premier League rivals Tottenham are interested, keen to steal Iheanacho away with the offer of greater first-team opportunities.
That is a prospect that does not worry Manchester City officials. And there is no panic to reward the youngster with an improved contract.
His current deal does not expire until 2019 and the terms of it are believed to be in keeping with the 18-year-old’s status.
