Kelechi Iheanacho included in Manchester City's squad for tour of China

Kelechi Iheanacho has been included in Manchester City's squad for their pre-season tour of China.

There were suggestions the 19-year-old Nigeria striker would not be able to travel due to visa issues.

Joe Hart and Raheem Sterling, members of England's Euro 2016 squad, were also in a 34-man playing group, as were new signings Oleksandr Zinchenko and Nolito.

Ilkay Gundogan, another summer recruit, was not included due to injury while Kevin de Bruyne, Eliaquim Mangala and Bacary Sagna remained on leave following prolonged involvement at the European Championship.

City were due to play a friendly in Germany against new manager Pep Guardiola's old club Bayern Munich on Wednesday evening before heading onwards to China. They play Manchester United in Beijing next Monday and Borussia Dortmund in Shenzen the following Thursday.
