 Ndidi Voted Into Leicester City's Premier League XI; Yakubu, Etuhu & Ikeme Not Eligible
Nigeria international Wilfred Ndidi has been voted into Leicester City's Premier League XI.

Leicester City ran a poll on Twitter asking fans to choose the player to partner N'Golo Kante in central midfield and the former Racing Genk star was selected ahead of Danny Drinkwater, Andy King and Muzzy Izzet.

Ndidi topped the public vote with 40 percent, his nearest challenger Izzet finished with 29 percent while Drinkwater (16 percent) and King (15 percent) were in third and fourth place respectively. 

The 23-year-old now joins 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 as the eight confirmed players in the starting line-up.

Former Nigeria international Ade Akinbiyi, current Super Eagles players Ahmed Musa and Kelechi Iheanacho are eligible to be nominated for an attacking position in the Foxes Premier League XI.

Kelvin Etuhu and Yakubu Aiyegbeni will miss out because they played for the King Power Stadium outfit in the Championship and the same applies to goalkeeper Carl Ikeme.
