Nigeria international defender, Wilfred Ndidi’s move to English Premier League side Leicester City from Genk of Belgium is a done deal, reports owngoalnigeria.com.
A fee of £15m payable in two different installment was agreed Wednesday night between Genk and Leicester City, before the Cup game against Waasland-Beveren, which the Nigerian scored in his team 3-1 win.
The 19-year-old has even picked up a shirt number ahead of his impending arrival in January, settling for the number 25 jersey, same number he is wearing at his current team.

Ndidi has five senior caps for Nigeria, and he is a utility player – as he could play central defence and defensive midfield. His goal against Club Brugge got voted the best goal in Belgium last season.
