The Foxes skipper is impressed with the abilities of the Nigeria international in front of goal following his switch to the King Power Stadium

Leicester City captain Wes Morgan is excited with the addition of Nigeria’s Kelechi Iheanacho to the team and he is eager to see him do great things for the club.

The Jamaica international disclosed that he expects the Super Eagles forward to add a unique touch to the team with his qualities in the new English Premier League campaign.

Iheanacho joined the Craig Shakespeare’s men from Manchester City on a five-year deal and could make his league debut when the Foxes visit Arsenal for their opening league game on Friday.

"He's a very, very good player. He's sharp and quick and he's definitely got an eye for goal," Morgan told SkySports.

"We did a round-robin tournament today and he was on my team. He popped up with some great goals from impossible positions, which is refreshing.

"It's good to see someone with that knowhow, someone with a different acuteness that adds something to the team.

"I think he'll come and do a great job for us."
