Iheanacho, Semi Ajayi Return to their Clubs for Pre-season


The duo of Kelechi Iheanacho and Semi Ajayi have rejoined their English teams, Leicester City and Rotterham United respectively ahead of pre-season as they intensify preparations for the new season.

Iheanacho, who was dropped from Nigeria’s final Africa Cup of Nations squad joined up with Leicester on Friday and was part of the players that travelled to France on Sunday.


The former Manchester City man must fight for a shirt to remain relevant at the King Power Stadium, following the arrival of Ayoze Perez from Newcastle in a club record fee this summer.


On his part, Semi Ajayi shared a picture of himself in action for Rotherham United in their first pre-season game against Parkgate FC which ended 7-0 in their favour.
