Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini feels justified offloading Alvaro Negredo and Edin Dzeko.

Pellegrini feels Kelechi Iheanacho can fill the void left by the departures of the pair.

“He is a young striker who every time he plays he demonstrates why he’s in the squad,” Pellegrini said.

“Maybe we had a lot of criticism when we didn’t replace Edin Dzeko and Alvaro Negredo but when you have a young player that has the conditions Kelechi has, he deserves an option and it’s very important for him to take the chance when he has that option.”
