Wilfred Ndidi Decides Future, Hints at Next Move

The Super Eagles and Leicester City midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi has spoken about his clubs future, while hinting at his next move.

The 25-year-old has been a regular in the Foxes midfield since he joined the club in 2017, with his formidable physicality attracting many top teams as suitors.

Despite the unending interest from bigger clubs in Europe, the midfielder has hinted he could stay beyond this season with his Leicester side.

Ndidi Makes Decision on Future

Ndidi in a recent interview said, “At the moment I am enjoying myself in Leicester and also my family is here.

“My business degree was on hold as at the time it was during the lockdown and then my daughter came. It is on hold but I am looking forward to it maybe next year.”

Manchester United are said to be one of the clubs interested in the services of the Nigerian International.

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers has however underlined the quality of Ndidi, while appreciating his worth.

Rodgers said, “He’s worth much more than that [£50million]. He’s been a really important player in my time here for his role. You see the importance of the role I give him in the team in how he protects the others.

“It’s a very young team as well and his experience and physicality help those players. He’s been absolutely brilliant, whatever role I’ve asked him to play whether it’s centre-half or midfield.

“But when you have that player he will always attract that interest. But he seems very settled here and I know he’s moved into a new house over this last period and seems very happy. He’s a pleasure to work with, a good guy and hopefully he can be around the club for many, many years.”
