Iheanacho tipped for Player of the Year


Adrian Durham, insists Kelechi Iheanacho should be a contender for the Premier League Player of the Season award.

The talkSPORT host  insists the in-form striker has had a bigger impact for Leicester than Jesse Lingard at West Ham in recent months .

Iheanacho has scored 12 goals in his last nine games in all competitions, while Lingard has netted nine times in 11 Premier League matches in a loan spell from Manchester United.

And Durham insists there is no ‘standout’ Player of the Season contender, which means Iheanacho should be considered for the award.

He told talkSPORT: “He is making a big difference at Leicester City.

“He’s making a bigger impact at Leicester right now than Lingard is at West Ham. Whether people like that or not, I don’t care. That’s the truth. That’s a fact. With [Jamie] Vardy not scoring, Iheanacho is keeping Leicester in the top four.

Leicester are in the top four and West Ham are not, he’s having a bigger impact than Lingard.

“They’re different players, they play in different position, I get it. But if people are talking about Lingard and saying how well he’s doing, and absolutely rightly so, and if they are putting him as a contender for Player of the Season, then they have to talk about Iheanacho in the same way.”

“There is no obvious Player of the Season – there’s no real obvious standout smack you in the face Player of the Season, is there?”
