Nigerian International, Wilfred Ndidi has been named Leicester City’s young player of the season award.
The 20-year-old beat Demarai Gray and Ben Chilwell to the prize at the club’s award ceremony on Monday.
Ndidi, since his move from Genk, has been in commanding form in the heart of Foxes’ midfield – capping it with two goals in the English Premier League.
Compared with Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante in terms of playing style, the Super Eagle is one of Craig Shakespeare’s regulars at King Power Stadium.
Moved by the accolade, he took to Twitter to express his gratitude.
