West Ham fans urge club to get Iheanacho deal done

According to reports in the Daily Telegraph, Manchester City want a buy-back clause inserted into any deal for West Ham United target Kelechi Iheanacho that could be worth £35m to the buying club.

The Irons are keen to bring the 20-year-old to the London Stadium this summer as Slaven Bilic looks to strengthen his attacking options and bring the average age of his squad down, but while City are willing to sell him for £25m, they want to be able to bring the player back to the Etihad for £35m if he impresses, guaranteeing a profit of £10m.

Iheanacho has scored 21 goals in 64 appearances in all competitions for City despite the majority of those outings coming from the substitutes’ bench, and the Hammers could face competition from Leicester City for the Nigeria international’s signature.

West Ham supporters were quick to have their say on the latest update via social media, and they believe the proposed deal is a “no-brainer” and that the club simply have to get the deal done.
