Leicester City Boss Refuses To Rule Out Selling Kelechi Iheanacho In JanuaryLeicester City boss Claude Puel has refused to rule out the possibility of selling Nigeria star Kelechi Iheanacho four weeks before the winter transfer market opens for business.

The Foxes have six strikers in the first team consisting of Iheanacho, Vardy, Ahmed Musa, Slimani, Okazaki and Ulloa, and the former Man City starlet has found game time hard to come by after making only two starts in the Premier League from a possible fifteen.

''Kelechi had an injury and after, for the moment, we have competition,'' Puel was quoted as saying by Leicester Mercury.

''I am happy with Jamie for example. Kelechi or other players cannot play on the side.

''It’s difficult for them, but for me also to manage all these players because we have six strikers so there is no place for all the players.''

Puel added :: ''I try to respect them. Kelechi arrived this season and we will see. With all these games in this busy period, we will see.

''Time will tell. The window is not open, we will see. For the moment, we just look at all these games. We need all the players.''

Iheanacho penned a five-year contract with Leicester City in the summer for a fee in the region of 25 million pounds.
