He subsequently won Leicester City’s Young Player of the Year award for two consecutive seasons following his fine defensive display.
He has also been an important member in the Nigeria national team set-up since making his debut back in October 2015.
Ndidi has so far made 18 appearances and scored two goals for the Foxes in all competitions this season
