Nigerian footballer, Kelechi Iheanacho, has officially signed a new two-year contract extension with his English club, Manchester City.
The 19-year-old striker, who was City’s third highest goal scorer last season, pledged his future to the Pep Guardiola side until at least 2021.
Speaking on City’s official website after the contract signing on Thursday, Iheanacho said: “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.”
His Manager added: “Kelechi is a natural goal-scorer. 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”.
