Leicester City Coach Disagrees With Rohr: Iheanacho Is Staying PutLeicester City manager Claude Puel has disagreed with his country man, Nigeria manager Gernot Rohr, regarding the future of Super Eagles star Kelechi Iheanacho.

Rohr earlier stated that he expects the Foxes number eight to leave the club before the end of the transfer window, with the World Cup approaching but this has been dismissed by Puel.

''We don't know about what the national trainer said. We will see. We have discussions with different players. For example Iheanacho is a young player, arrived this season, and he will stay with us,''
Puel told reporters

"I cannot talk about details about players. It is important to have a good balance in the team and have a good game time for the players.

"Iheanacho is a young player, he signed this season with us and we have to develop him. I hope he can have more game time in the second half of the season.''

Iheanacho joined Leicester City from Manchester City for £25m last summer, but he has scored only one goal from 12 appearances and his game time has been very inconsistent.
