Leicester City to sign Genk's Nigeria international Wilfred Ndidi - sources

Leicester City will sign Nigeria international Wilfred Ndidi from Belgian club Racing Genk in a £15 million deal, sources close to the player have told ESPN FC.

The midfielder will sign a five-year contract and is expected to complete the move -- subject to a successful medical and work permit application -- in January.

Ndidi, who joined Genk from Lagos club Nath Boys FC in 2015, has scored two goals in 30 appearances for them.

A versatile player who can also play in defence, the 19-year-old made his full international debut in 2015.

He has now made four full international appearances for Nigeria, the last two coming in World Cup qualifying wins against Zambia and Algeria.
