Struggling defending champions, ‘Leicester City’ have confirmed the signing of Genk defensive midfielder, ‘Wilfred Ndidi’ for a fee reported to be around £15m.
The 20-year old Nigerian signs a five year deal that will keep him at the ‘King Power Stadium’ until 2022. Ndidi who spoke with the club's TV Channel said;
"I feel I can learn a lot here, I try to win the balls for the team - that is one of my main attributes. I have to achieve a lot here".
Leicester City manager, Claudio Ranieri expressed his delight at completing the signing, labeling Ndidi as a player with a very bright future.
