Leicester City attacker Kelechi Iheanacho has reacted to rumors linking him with a January move to EPL side Aston Villa.

Iheanacho returned to Leicester City’s bench in Wednesday’s home win over Watford, few days after helping the team overcome Everton.

 

With the next transfer window in January, reports in England suggests Aston Villa are ready to snap up the Nigerian as a crucial first team player on a permanent deal.

 

The 23 year-old however insists he’s happy at the King Power stadium and has no reason to leave.

 

“No, I am happy here, everyone is happy,” he said. “The manager is a top manager who is friendly to everyone.

 

“I don’t see the reason why anyone could want to leave. I think he gives everyone chances, there are a lot of games coming up.

 

“I believe in myself if I get the chance. It happens in football, sometimes you can face trying times or sometimes you can play.

 

“It is a time I have to face in my life and just have to keep going. I just have to keep my confidence and be strong.” Iheanacho said.
