The FIFA U17 World Cup MVP is currently back in Manchester nursing the injury after the training with MLS side Colombus Crew.
In August, Iheanacho suffered a hamstring injury, which kept him out for several weeks.
The Nigeria starlet is now expected to be granted a work permit to play his trade in the UK after Manchester City applied for it from the British Home office.
Iheanacho has been called up by both Nigeria U20 team, the Flying Eagles, and the country’s Olympic team for crucial qualifying matches in the New Year.
The Flying Eagles, have a tough group draw for the African Youth Championship in March after they were pitched against hosts Senegal, Congo and Cote d’Ivoire.
