Manchester City’s Nigerian striker Kelechi Iheanacho (L) celebrates scoring another wonderful goal 

Nigerian youngster Kelechi Iheanacho is condemned to wait longer for a new deal with his English Premier League side, Manchester City as the crisis between two rival agencies who are both claiming to represent him is far from over.

The Citizens are understood to be keen to hand the 19-year old an improved deal but they have chosen to wait for the resolution of an ongoing dispute between the two rivaling agencies.

Iheanacho who was voted MVP at the 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates still has three years remaining on his present £20,000 a week deal.

Iheanacho has scored eight goals this campaign and recently scored a hat-trick in the 4-0 FA Cup victory at Aston Villa.

Reports earlier this week stated outgoing boss Manuel Pellegrini wants to take the talented 19-year-old with him when he departs the Etihad Stadium this summer.

The Citizens, however, have no intention of letting the starlet leave and are confident they can quickly agree a vastly-improved five-year-deal when the legal row is concluded.
