Nigerian international midfielder Wilfred Ndidi was named Leicester City’s Young Player of the Season by the club’s supporters this week.
Ndidi joined the club in January and has earned the admiration of Foxes’ fans not only for being a shield in front of the back four, but for his passing range and attacking prowess.
The 20 year old has adapted well to the English game and formed a formidable midfield partnership with Danny Drinkwater. If he continues to progress like this next season, it would only be a matter of time before bigger clubs come calling.
He tweeted after the awards night on Monday:
