 Ndidi tells Leicester coach he wants to be in midfield, happy to assist Iheanacho score stunning volley
Wilfred Ndidi was happy to assist Kelechi Iheanacho score a sensational goal in their 1-1 draw with Burnley in a Premier League match at Turf Moor on Wednesday evening.

Eleven minutes before half-time, Iheanacho put the Foxes back on level terms with a fine finish, sending a superb first-time volley into the net after Ndidi lofted a ball over the Burnley defence.

It was the first time Ndidi set up a goal scored by Iheanacho in the Premier League and he noted the importance of the goal, saying it helped them walk away with a share of the spoils.

Speaking to Leicester City's official website, Ndidi said : "It was a really fantastic goal. I’m happy for him.

"I’m glad I made the assist, but he finished it and it was good for the team, keeping the 1-1."

Ndidi was initially deployed as a central defender in his last match against Burnley and has insisted that his preferred position is midfield.

The Super Eagle also played in defence against West Brom, Burnley and Everton in the first part of the season.

"I would say, for me, I want to be in the midfield, but it’s for the team. I have to do that. Whichever position the gaffer wants me to play, I will try my best for the team," the former Racing Genk star added.

Next up for Ndidi and his Leicester City teammates, they face Brighton & Hove Albion at AMEX Stadium on Saturday.
