Wilfred Ndidi closes in on £15m move from Genk to Leicester City
Leicester have taken a step closer to finalising the £15million transfer of Wilfred Ndidi from Genk after he underwent a medical on Monday.
The clubs agreed the fee last month and the 19-year-old is to sign a five year contract in January once he gets clearance for a work permit.
Ndidi is an athletic, defensive midfielder renowned for his stamina.
Leicester face Bournemouth on Tuesday with Claudio Ranieri offering no guarantees of an instant return for midfielder Danny Drinkwater, who has completed a three-match ban.
‘The away form is very important because if you lose the next two matches you forget this great performance and for us it’s fundamental to get points at Bournemouth and Stoke.
‘There are two big battles to come but with these warriors I am very confident.’
