No Immediate Plan To Move To Aston Villa – Ndidi

Nigeria international and Leicester City’s midfielder Wilfred Ndidi has revealed he is “enjoying” himself in the city amid reports of interest from Aston Villa over a summer move.

Steven Gerrard’s side are reportedly willing to pay £50million for the Nigeria international at the end of this season, according to Daily Star.

City supporters were not having any of the links, though, with many suggesting that the rumoured fee falls well short of what the club should be asking for.

Villa have been widely reported as interested in adding a defensive midfielder this off-season, with Brighton and Hove Albion ‘s Yves Bissouma also touted as a potential target.

Ndidi has been an ever-present figure in the side this month since returning from a collectively disappointing showing at the Africa Cup of Nations for the Super Eagles last month.

The 25-year-old has also showcased the versatility of being able to play in midfield and also as part of the defence against Liverpool at Anfield last month.

Should Ndidi, as expected, feature in the Europa Conference League knockout round play-off first leg against Randers on Thursday, then that would mark 200 appearances for the club since arriving from Genk in January 2017.

And just over five years later, the player has revealed at the pre-match press conference on Wednesday that he is still “enjoying” himself in the East Midlands.

“At the moment, I am enjoying myself in Leicester,” Ndidi replied when asked whether he had settled in the city.

“My family is here.” My business degree is on hold. There was a lockdown, and then my daughter was born.

Ndidi was studying business and management at De Montfort University, a stone’s throw from where the midfielder is set to bring up a double century of appearances.
