Leicester City coach,  Brendan Rodgers has said that Wilfred Ndidi is worth “much more” than £50million to the club.


The 25-year-old Nigerian midfielder, who is contracted until 2024, has been linked with Aston Villa with reports they are ready to bid for him this summer with £50m to spend.

When that figure was put to Rodgers at a press conference on Wednesday, he said: “He’s worth much more than that.”

Rodgers admitted that good players always attract interest but says the midfielder is happy at the club and sees no reason why he would not choose to stay.


“It’s both of those things – it’s how it works,” Rodgers said. “A player of that quality and mentality, of course you want to always keep, but when you have that player, he will always attract interest.


“But he seems very settled here. I know he’s moved into a new house and he seems very, very happy. He’s a pleasure to work with and hopefully, he can be around the club for many years.”

Ndidi had spoken himself earlier at the press conference. He said: “At the moment I am enjoying myself in Leicester.

“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.”
