Aston Villa Target January Loan Move For Iheanacho

Aston Villa Target January Loan Move For Iheanacho

Aston Villa are reportedly interested in signing Leicester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho on loan in the January transfer window.

While Dean Smith is unlikely to spend in the new year after spending a lot in the summer, the Villa boss is thought to want to add quality and depth to his squad for the second half of the season.

The West Midlands club currently only have Jonathan Kodjia and Keinan Davis as backup options to main striker Wesley, with the former consistently linked with a move abroad and the latter injured.

The Birmingham Mail reports that Villa are eyeing up Iheanacho, who registered an assist and scored a late winner for Brendan Rodgers’ side on Sunday in his first Premier League appearance of the season.

The 23-year-old Nigerian has scored 13 goals in 66 games for the Foxes since joining them from Manchester City in 2017, although most of his minutes have come from the bench.

    Only n only if there is a signed guarantee that you will be an ever presence in the first 11, otherwise stay away from all teams managed by English men or teams where the back room staff are about 80% English

  • Stick to Brendan Rodgers, Don’t Leave Leicester City. The whole point of Iheanacho is not how much game time he gets, It’s his improvement as a player and, the self belief in himself.The only coaches at the moment in England who seem to be able to do that for a player are non other than Bredan Rodgers and Jurgen Klopp. Stick with Rodgers, as he promised when he took over at Leicester, he will improve Iheanacho as a footballer and from what I saw on Sunday, He seems to be doing just that. Iheanacho looked like a different player his first touch, His technique and his Control have all improved under Rodgers. Rodgers knows what he is doing clearly. Iheanacho should not make the mistake off leaving Leicester. And besides the fact that Rodgers introduced him on Sunday means he feels Iheanacho is ready for more game time and boy was he right Iheanacho played like I have never seen him before not even at Manchester City, His play was similar to that of Didier Drogba, is it to early to make such a comparison?, Maybe so but, if Brendan Rodgers keeps doing what he is doing and, Iheanacho keeps listening and working hard then the comparison to Drogba will be much deserved and not seem far fetched.

    I now believe Iheanacho will get more minutes lets see how he plays from start to finish of a game. The ball is in his court now to push on from here

    Ugo you are right. I think I agree with you.

    • @Elijah samson.. Nigerians need to thank god for Brendan Rodgers that man is a god sent to Kelechi Iheanacho’s Career,.


      I keep up and follow Naija boys abroad..

      Kelechi’s Improvement as a player is all down to Brendan Rodgers.. the same thing Rodgers did for Luiz Suarez.

      Nigerians should realise the reason Iheanacho has not been playing is because he was not ready. The reason Rodgers brought him on is because Iheanacho is now Ready. watch and See

      Once again @Elijah Samson thanks for reciprocating.
