Meanwhile, this is a form of reward for the Super Eagles forward who has been firing on all cylinders for the King Power Stadium outfit.

The 24-year-old has 18 goals and seven assists in 37 appearances across all competitions for Leicester so far this campaign and he could increase the tally before the season wraps up this month.

Iheanacho was also instrumental to their first-ever FA Cup triumph after beating Chelsea 1-0 at the Wembley Stadium last weekend.

If they maintain their third position in their last two league games, they will be playing in the Champions League next term.
