The Lions are keeping tabs on Iheanacho with a view to a potential transfer in the summer transfer window.

The Nigeria national teamer will occupy a homegrown player slot on Aston Villa’s Premier League roster for the 2024-2025 campaign if the deal goes through, having spent his formative years at Manchester City before turning 21.

Iheanacho is a seasoned campaigner in the Premier League, as he is four games away from reaching a milestone of 200 games in the English top-flight.

His statistics in the Premier League are descent – registering 67 goal involvements (42 goals, 25 assists).


Iheanacho was tipped for big things after winning the Golden Ball award at the 2013 Fifa U17 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates.
