Wilfred Ndidi transfer from Leicester will not be taking place this summer.

Wilfred Ndidi has quashed rumours linking him with a move away from Leicester City by saying he is doing okay with the West Midlands club. The Nigerian central midfielder, who joined the Foxes from Belgian side Genk in January 2017, is truly enjoying his time at the King Power stadium after becoming an important player in the Leicester first team.

Despite reports linking him to other Premier League clubs, the 23-year-old is keen to continue plying his trade under former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers. "We are doing well and I am enjoying myself here. I still have a contract with Leicester," he told ESPN.

The Nigeria international thanked Foxes head-coach Rodgers for helping his development, adding that the Northern Irishman is 'very different'. "No disrespect to other managers but kudos to Brendan Rodgers," Ndidi said. "He has done a lot of work on me. I remember the Chelsea game when [Mason] Mount took the ball from me and scored. That day made me a better player.

"The fact that he trusts and tries to improve the players is one thing. It is very difficult for a manager to come in and then dedicate himself to improving players, getting regular one-on-one meetings with players to help them make improvements. "This is professional football; some teams won't have that time for you to do all that. Everybody is just focused on the business, they're paying you for it and expect you to do the work. But Rodgers is different, very different."
