Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri has played down comparisons between his new Nigerian signing Wilfred Ndidi who joined from KRC Genk this week, and N'Golo Kante, who left for Chelsea in the summer.
"He's another kind of player (to Kante) – totally different. A lot of big teams wanted him, but he prefers to come with us to improve," Ranieri told a press conference on Thursday.
"He is a very impressive player with a great future. He is tall and jumps very well for the headers, moves the ball quickly and recovers the ball very well.
"Everything with the work permit is OK.
"He trained today. He is available for Saturday and all is fine. I don't know (if he will play). Let me see him in training.
"Today was his first (session). He was OK and I want to see tomorrow and then I'll choose.
"We have followed him a lot and we hope he will very quickly impress the fans."
Ndidi joined Leicester in a £15m, five-year deal from Genk.
