Leicester City boss, Brendan Rodgers has given his verdict on Super Eagles striker, Kelechi Iheanacho.

Rodgers confirmed that Iheanacho has a long-term future at the club and is confident he can call upon the Nigerian if he(Rodgers) needs him at the weekend.

Iheanacho was named in Rodgers’ starting line-up for the first time this season during the 3-1 win over Burton in the Caraboa Cup on Wednesday.

However, the former Celtic boss denied that the Nigeria international is surplus to requirements and praised his level of effort in training.

“Yes [he does have a future long term],” the City boss said at his press conference on Friday.
