News reaching us from the home of the English Premier League 2015/16 season champions, Leicester City indicate that Nigeria born Wilfred Ndidi’s move from Genk of Belgium is completed.
A fee of £15m payable in two different installments was agreed last night between Genk and Leicester City, before the Cup game against Waasland-Beveren which the Nigerian scored in his team 3-1 win.
We can also confirm that the 19 year old has even picked up a shirt number ahead of his impending arrival in January, settling for the number 25 jersey, same number he is wearing at his current team.
Ndidi who has 5 senior caps for Nigeria has grown in leaps and bounds since switching from central defence to defensive midfield at the start of last season.
He has grown into a mainstay of the first team at Genk, and even in the Nigeria national team. He has also added goals to his game with his goal against Club Brugge voted the best goal in Belgium last season.
