Leicester City Premier League XI : Ndidi Among 4 Players Nominated To Partner Kante In CM
2016 Premier League champions Leicester City are looking to find the club's best Premier League XI on Twitter.

The Foxes have gone for a 4-4-2 formation, with goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, right-back Ricardo Pereira, center back Wes Morgan, center back Robert Huth, left-back Christian Fuchs, right winger Riyad Mahrez and central midfieder N'Golo Kanté already voted into the squad.

In search of the player to partner Kante in central midfield, Nigeria international Wilfred Ndidi has been nominated alongside two title winners in Danny Drinkwater and Andy King, and club icon Muzzy Izzet.

On Ndidi, they wrote : "Regularly at the top of the Premier League's tackling charts over his three years at King Power Stadium, Ndidi's importance to Leicester's midfield cannot be overestimated.

"Now a fully established Nigeria international, despite still being just 23, Ndidi is recognised as one of the most talented central midfielders currently playing in England."

Since joining Leicester City in January 2017, the Nigeria international has played 130 matches in all competitions, scoring eight goals and setting up seven others.

As at the time of this report, Ndidi was leading the voting with 38 percent of fans voting for the midfield general, ahead of Izzet (31%), King (16%) and Drinkwater (15%).
