Ndidi, 20, will be in the travelling party that heads to Merseyside on Friday and, subject to his registration being cleared by the Premier League and the Football Association, he could feature in the third round tie at Goodison Park.

City manager Claudio Ranieri said: “We’re very happy to have Ndidi here – he’s an impressive player with a big future. We’ve followed him a lot and we hope he can impress our fans quickly.

“He trained well with the squad today. It was his first training session so we need to see him tomorrow before we decide whether he will play at Everton on Saturday.”
