Leicester City forward, Kelechi Iheanacho has demanded an exit from the club before the transfer window closes on Wednesday, and asked The Foxes to let him leave on loan.
Iheanacho has started just two Premier League games since his £25m move to King Power Stadium from Manchester City in the summer, but is now eyeing a move to Newcastle United, who are ready to offer him regular first-team football.
Incidentally, Leicester boss, Claude Puel has expressed recent trust in Iheanacho for Cup games and is now ready to let the 21-year-old get some game time.
However, whilst there are a couple of clubs from around Europe clamouring for Iheanacho in the January market, Newcastle are emerging genuine contenders for his signature.
The Magpies were thought to be interested in the former City forward over the summer but missed out to the Foxes.
