The agent of Leicester midfielder Wilfred Ndidi has ruled out a potential transfer move during the summer.

The 20-year-old has settled in quickly since signing for the Foxes from Genk in January, performing well in midfield and impressing during Leicester's recent resurgence in form. 

Manchester United have been among those linked with a transfer for Ndidi, with the Red Devils in need of midfield reinforcements, while Arsenal have also struggled in central areas this season. 


Southampton are also said to be interested in the Nigeria international, although the midfielder's agent has confirmed he is not looking to leave this summer despite unofficial approaches being made.

“There are many unofficial approaches but he is never going to leave because of the way Leicester players and coaches welcomed and treated him. Besides it is normal,” Ndidi’s representative told ​

“Southampton never pay big money for players. Ndidi was one of the most expensive Leicester signings and that might increase due to league points and championships.”

Leicester City v Stoke City - Premier League

United had made an official approach for Ndidi before he signed for Leicester, so impressive was his form in Belgium, but their slow approach allowed the Premier League champions to nip in and secure a £17m deal.

A potential fee could rise to £18m for Ndidi, who scored his first Premier League goal for Leicester during the 2-0 win over Stoke on Saturday. 

While Leicester look to have escaped in the battle against relegation, they remain involved in the Champions League with their quarter-final tie against Atletico Madrid set to take place next week.
