Manchester City are battling to secure a work permit for teenage Nigerian Striker Kelechi Iheanacho. City have beaten both Manchester United and Arsenal to the 17 year olds signature, and are now hoping to secure a work permit, to bring him to Manchester.

Currently the youngster is playing for City's new academy in Ghana until he earns enough caps to potentially qualify for a UK work permit.

Iheanacho was voted the player of the tournament in the U-17 World Cup, scoring 6 goals for the Nigerian side.
