Update from Iheanacho’s agent on transfer


AgentKelechi Iheanacho’s Nigerian agent, Olumide Olowu says there is no current agreement between West Ham and Manchester City for his client but he would be happy to accept a contract as long it is up to his standards.

In an email dated today seen by Claret and Hugh his agent says:

“There has been no agreement between the two clubs at the moment but the deal could yet still happen. Kelechi is training with the Nigerian squad at the moment and is aware that West Ham are interested in signing him. Soon as the clubs have come to agree terms with each other Iheanacho will be happy to accept as long as the contract is up to his standards.  Regards Olumindo”

Sources close to West Ham said at the beginning of the week that they were still waiting to receive an answer from Manchester City after making a bid.

    Just tell us when he has signed or when it is officially off young Sean.All this secret emails and quotes from nigerian sites are making my old grey matter spin lol

    Best to leave it , Stan . Probably not worth the bother anyway . On the bench and not used much by City . Why should we be SOOOO interested ?? .

  • Stan The Man says:

    Because he is a very good player Kevin.Not being able to get a start when you have the likes of Aguero and Jesus is hardly a reflection on his ability.
    I have said it before i prefer to read and listen to what people in the game think of a player and i hear nothing but good things about the boy and a few so called experts on here questioning the move wont change my view lol

    Decent signing if we get him….
    To be honest this could be a transfer saga.
    So sit tight for the long haul.
    Iheanacho is apparently on £35k a week at City…
    If you give him £60k I’m pretty sure that his agent would be happy with that for his client… especially if you add bonus’.
    Unfortunately the main issue sounds like it could be the actual fee for the player and the buy back clause.
    Nothing is ever simple for West Ham….
    Definitely is going to be a summer saga!
    And this Batshuayi situation is sad… the guy turned us down for Chelsea…..
    And the fact he could end up a loanee to us…
    Just rubs salt in the wounds to him and West Ham.
    I do hope he joins, I hope both join.
    They would be decent signings for our club.
    But transfers are always so difficult for us…
    Batshuayi has Monaco, Everton and Newcastle sniffing…
    As Iheanacho has big clubs sniffing around.
    Where we as fans want both players or even one…
    Could end up with neither….
    And that would be a real shame.
    So fingers crossed that we can get at least one of these deals sorted… and be bloody quick about it as well!

    i think the hold up is the agent in Nigeria is waiting for west hams bank details and sort code, the money will be then transferred into his account.
    Hopefully the pigeon will be gone then and the player will sign.

      Or maybe it is to fund the Nigerian version of the League of `Extraordinary Gentleman judging by the weird photo in this article 😉

  • Stan The Man says:

    Its good to see you are still talking as much sense as ever young Nigel lol

  • sleepswithdafishes says:

    is that an update from all his agents who are having a legal battle, or just one who is not really involved lol

  • bubs says:

    Great signing
    10 mil profit in 2years
    Love our owners but sometimes they need to feel they get a
    speech deal before they pull the trigger
    Let’s get it done find him a new partner
    Sell AC Sak Ayew and start again use Martinez and Fletcher as back up
    No Brainer
