Newcastle United, Aston Villa and Wolves set sights on out-of-contract Championship star

Newcastle United, Aston Villa and Wolves are among the sides keen on Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi, HITC has claimed.

Leicester City midfielder Ndidi has had speculation surrounding his future for some time now. The likes of Newcastle United, Aston Villa and Wolves are not the first to be linked with the Nigerian.

Ndidi sees his Foxes deal run out at the end of the season. He’s been with the club since January 2017 and has played 267 times since then, chipping in with 15 goals and 18 assists in the process.

Now though, HITC reports that it is looking increasingly likely that the 27-year-old leaves Leicester City this summer. That is regardless of how their Championship promotion push ends, and it has alerted several clubs.

Newcastle United are keen alongside Aston Villa, Wolves, Spurs, and Brighton. The Premier League quintet are monitoring his situation and could pounce if he’s available this summer.

Ndidi has made 30 appearances this season, only recently returning to the side after a spell out through injury. He has four goals and six assists for Enzo Maresca’s side and has played in a slightly more advanced role than before.

Who is this?

Moving on?

As his Leicester deal winds down, Ndidi looks to be edging towards an exit. Losing a player of his quality is a blow but given that he could be a helpful financial asset too, him moving on for nothing amid the Foxes’ PSR concerns makes for another blow.

Opportunistic clubs look set to pounce, and they can’t be blamed for that. Ndidi is a midfielder with bags of Premier League experience and he’s starred at that level before. If he can get back to his best, he will be a real force in midfield.

Leicester City will be disappointed if he moves on for nothing but unless he plans on signing a new contract, that seems a likely outcome. Then, it will be up to him to decide where he wants to move next after over seven years at the King Power Stadium.
