Leicester City boss praises scouts for recruiting excellent Wilfred Ndidi

Leicester City boss Craig Shakespeare has heaped praises on the club’s scout for doing an excellent job in recruiting excellent Wilfred Ndidi.

The Nigerian International midfielder was signed in January from Genk for a reported fee of £17m to fill the void left by Ngolo Kante who joined Chelsea in the summer.

Wilfred Ndidi excellent performances has seen him attracting top clubs from Europe and a move away from the King Power Stadium could be on the offing with Arsenal, Manchester United, Southampton and Hamburg ready to pay whatever it will take have him.

But Shakespeare has chosen to appreciate the talent the club has got in Ndidi and praise the club’s scout for a job well done in recruiting him.


“Our recruitment department take a real pat on the back for that. We did a lot of homework on Ndidi and I think we were one of the first clubs, if not the first, to show an interest in him,” he said.

“I think he, and his family and agent, remembered that so we were in the driving seat. When other clubs came in for him he remembered the way we went about it first. He had other options.

“From what you’re seeing so far, we’ve got a good player on our hands.”
