Leicester City midfielder, Wilfred Onyinyen Ndidi has described as mere speculation reports linking him with an exit from The Foxes this summer.
Ndidi went on to declare that he will not pay attention to any transfer talk swirling round him, because he wants to concentrate fully on regaining fitness in time to feature for the Super Eagles at Russia 2018 World Cup.
Ndidi, who was one of Leicester City’s top performers last season and voted the club’s Young Player of the Year, claims he is not thinking of anything beyond the national team’s participation at the World Cup.
After missing the friendly against Congo DR on Tuesday, Ndidi is expected to feature against England in Saturday’s friendly at Wembley Stadium for his 16th Super Eagles cap.
Ndidi also doused speculations linking him with a move away from King Power Stadium after he was heavily linked with Premier League heavyweights Liverpool and Arsenal.
Ndidi reiterated his determination to help Nigeria impress in Russia and says he will not be distracted by speculations surrounding his future at English Premier League club.
“Those are just speculations and I don’t pay heed to them. I have a contract with Leicester City and I intend to respect it.
“I’m a young player still learning and there’s a long way to go for me in the game so why should I be in a rush to leave. Everything has its time.
“I’m currently in camp and preparing for the World Cup. I’m in high spirits and confident of being fully fit for my team.
“We want to do well at the World Cup and a win in our first game is key to how far we’ll go in the competition,” the former Racing Genk of Belgium star stressed.
