Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare says he has been impressed with Wilfred Ndidi since the Nigeria midfielder arrived at the King Power Stadium in January, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Ndidi who has barely put a foot wrong since completing a £15m move from Belgian side Genk in January has surpassed the expectations of his manager, settling in well at the club.
The Nigerian international has made 12 appearances in all competitions for Leicester and has scored once.
"Ndidi has a huge future in the game," Shakespeare was quoted on Leicestermercury.co.uk
"He is looking the part. He is a young boy but he has settled in really well. I think he has a huge future in the game.
"There was a lot of interest in him from other clubs but he was high on the list of our recruitment team and, in the end, we did really well to get him.
"He will be a big player for us.
"I think he will be a big player for us. He is made-to-measure for this league but he is humble and his personality is suited to our football club. He is easy to manage."
