Super Eagles and Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi exceed expectations significantly after the 20-year-old Nigerian forged a solid presence in the Foxe’s midfield since his arrival in the January transfer window.
Ndidi has built up himself as the first choice to help teammate Danny Drinkwater in Leicester’s midfield and Leicester City’s interim manager Shakespeare has been awed with what he has seen from the Nigerian until this point
Greg Shakespeare has talked in sparkling terms about Wilfred Ndidi saying: “Ndidi has a huge future in the game,” Shakespeare was quoted on Leicestermercury.co.uk
“He is looking the part. He is a young boy but he has settled in really well. I think he has a huge future in the game.
“There was a lot of interest in him from other clubs but he was high on the list of our recruitment team and, in the end, we did really well to get him.
“He will be a big player for us.
“I think he will be a big player for us. He is made-to-measure for this league but he is humble and his personality is suited to our football club. He is easy to manage.”
Wilfred Ndidi was named the man of the match in Nigeria’s friendly against Senegal last week Thursday and has returned to Leicester city.
Ndidi is expected to resume training on Thursday as revitalised Leicester city will host Stoke city on Saturday in the EPL.
