Iheanacho left Eagles camp last Saturday to clear some personal issues as reported by Super Eagles, but FCNaija has some other brief details of what inspired the player's move back to London before reporting back on Tuesday.

Iheanacho, after playing and scoring the equalizing goal for the Super Eagles against Corsica last week Friday in Ajaccio, left for London the next day to hook up with his friends Chinedu Ikedieze 'Aki' and Osita Iheme 'Paw Paw' who are currently in London for their show tour.

The video which was shared by one of the actor's P.A reveals the footballer alongside his friend Kingsley Ogbodo and Chinedu Ikedieze chilling as they all head out to have fun in the city. Iheanacho and his compatriots were all hailing themselves in the Igbo dialect and striking pose for the camera. 'Let's go to the town and have some good fun,' was the last statement from the Nollywood actor.

Although details of his impending move from Manchester City still remain hazy, the Etihad team is believed to be discussing terms with West Ham United with emphasis on a buy-back clause in the contract. The Hammers officially tabled 20million pounds bid for the 2013 FIFA Under-17 World Cup winner.

Iheanacho has also kept details of his trip to Manchester to himself, refusing to disclose his next base with any of his teammates.

Kelechi Iheanacho returned to Super Eagles training camp in Paris on Tuesday ahead of today's international friendly with the Hawks of Togo in the French capital.
