City Suspends Iheanacho’s New Deal

Manchester City has suspended an improved contract deal for Nigerian youngster Kelechi Iheanacho, following a legal tussle involving agents representing the player.

US-based First Eleven Management reportedly secured Iheanacho his first City deal but Iheanacho signed on with UK-based Stellar Group.

First eleven have asked the Football Association arbitration to cancel the new management contract which Iheanacho has signed with Stellar group, a battle that could well be decided in a courtroom.

A statement released by Manchester City as regards the legal battle between his representatives reads: “Talks over a new contract for Kelechi have been suspended until the FA arbitration decides on who his agents are. First Eleven who first managed him have asked for the FA to cancel a new management contract the player has entered with Stellar Group.

“It is only after the decision by arbitration that the situation will be a lot clearer. But even then, this could go all the way to the courtroom the way things are going.”

The 19-year old has scored five goals in all competitions for Manuel Pellegrini’s side
