Wilfred Ndidi has revealed he is “flattered” to be linked with a move to the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal this summer, but suggests he is not pursuing a move away from Leicester.

Ndidi signed for the Foxes in January 2017 for a fee in the region of £17million, and has impressed in his 101 appearances for the club in all competitions.

The midfielder is set to represent Nigeria at this summer’s Africa Cup of Nations, and speaking ahead of the tournament, Ndidi said he was “flattered” by the interest in him, the Leicester Mercury report via Goal.

 I am flattered when hearing such a thing. It is very good to hear about that interest from big clubs, but there is nothing on the ground so I won’t care about it.

I am focusing on AFCON with Nigeria now, and then pre-season with Leicester City. We have a great manager with ambition to compete with big clubs in the Premier League.

Ndidi was a key figure in midfield for Leicester last season and made the highest number of tackles in the Premier League as the Foxes finished ninth.
