The Villans are apparently interested in the Nigerian international as a replacement for Mali international Yves Bisssouma.

Wilfred Ndidi, a member of the Super Eagles, has replied to speculations tying him to a £50 million transfer from Leicester City to Aston Villa.

Steven Gerrard, the manager of Aston Villa, is eyeing a summer transfer for Ndidi as a replacement for Bissouma.

It may be difficult, though, after Ndidi stated that he is not considering leaving Leicester because he is enjoying his time there.

Ndidi joined Leicester City in January 2017 and has since established himself as one of the top defensive midfielders in the Premier League and the world.

Although Leicester have had a dismal season so far, the 25-year-efforts old’s have been crucial to their success in prior years.

Ndidi’s performances have piqued the interest of prominent European teams, with Villa the latest to be linked with a move for the Nigerian.

However, speaking before of Leicester’s 4-1 Europa League triumph against Randers, the ex-Genk man confesses that he does not see himself leaving the King Power Stadium at the moment for a variety of reasons.

“At the moment, I am enjoying myself in Leicester,” Ndidi said as per Talksport.

“My family is here. My business degree was on hold because, at the time, it was during lockdown, and then my daughter (was born). But I’m looking forward to it maybe next year.”

Ndidi’s current contract with Leicester runs until 2024.
