Leicester City manager Claude Puel has hailed to the qualities of Wilfred Ndidi, who signed a new six-year contract with the club last weekend.
Wilfred Ndidi joined Leicester from Genk in January 2017 and has made 62 appearances since his arrival at the King Power Stadium.
A number of teams were said to be interested in signing the Nigerian this summer, but Leicester managed to keep him, and have since tied the midfielder to the club until the summer of 2024.
Speaking at his pre-match press conference ahead of Saturday’s trip to Southampton, Puel claimed that Ndidi is improving as a footballer all of the time.
“We forget that he is just 21. It is crazy. He is an experienced player. He wins the ball but he has got better on the ball: his control, his passes and capacity to take information and give direction,” Puel told reporters.
