Leicester City will resist all offers for Wilfred Ndidi this summer, claims a report from his homeland.

According to a report from All Nigeria Soccer, the Foxes see the Nigeria midfielder as integral to their plans are they will not sell the midfielder in the next transfer window.

The report claims PSG and Manchester United have been watching Ndidi’s progress with interest in the last few months. And the 23-year-old has not disappointed with a series of powerful displays before the Premier League was suspended in March.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking for another midfield player with the future of Paul Pogba far from assured and Rio Ferdinand recently claimed Ndidi was a player United should be looking to recruit.

The defensive midfielder has been a vital cog in Brendan Rodgers’ machine and has been mentioned as a potential £50m target for their Premier League rivals.

The report states that no formal offers have been made for the player and regardless “the Nigeria international feels at home at Leicester City and is not thinking about leaving the club even if a bid is made”.



Only last month the player stated he was content at the King Power Stadium.

“I still have a contract at Leicester,” said Ndidi, who is committed to the Foxes until 2024.

“I am learning and trying to improve myself every day and I’m doing okay here so no need to go anywhere.

“We are doing well and I’m enjoying myself here.”
