Leicester City yet to inform Ndidi of possible departure from club amid exit talk
Allnigeriasoccer.com can exclusively report that Wilfred Ndidi will report for pre-season training at Leicester City as things stand amid speculation linking the holding midfielder with a 'possible departure' from the King Power Stadium in the summer.

The Foxes hierarchy, manager Brendan Rodgers in particular, has not informed Ndidi that he would be sold and the Nigeria international is amazed by the reports.

It was claimed that Leicester City have targeted Brighton & Hove's Mali midfielder Yves Bissouma as a replacement for Ndidi in the event that he departs the Foxes before the close of the summer transfer window.

Leicester City are in advanced talks to sign Boubakary Soumaré but the Lille star is not viewed as a like-for-like replacement for Ndidi. 

The former Racing Genk ace has emerged as one of the best defensive midfielders in the Premier League since joining Leicester City in January 2017, and is rated as the most valuable player in the Foxes squad by Transfermarkt.

Ndidi, who has a contract with Leicester City until June 2024, has racked up 176 appearances for the club, scoring nine goals and has eleven assists to his name.
