Struggling reigning champions Leicester City have secured their first signing of the January transfer window: 20-year-old Wilfred Ndidi for Belgian side Genk for a reported fee around 14 million pounds. The Nigerian player has passed a medical at Leicester and has signed a five-year contract with the Foxes, but the deal will only go through if he will be granted a work permit later this week.
The work permit should not be a problem, considering that the youngster has already earned 5 senior caps for Nigeria and has also represented his nation at Under-20 level. Ndidi had joined Genk in 2015 and quickly established himself in the first team despite his young age. He made 64 league appearances in the Belgian top-flight, scoring nine goals. This season he helped Genk to the knockout phase of the Europa League.
Ndidi started his career at Genk as a central defender, but later on he was employed as a defensive midfielder and then as a central midfielder. He is also perfectly capable of playing as a left-back, so probably his versatility was one of the main reasons that convinced Leicester to sign him. The Foxes are currently 15th in the Premier League table and they are 16/1 at Bet365 to get relegated this season.

Obviously Leicester needing some reinforcement after the poor season they having. I guess many fans expected tough season for them after all going their way last but don't believed many expected they will be involved in the relegation battle.
Don't know what impact that young player might have for them but I guess their scouting know what they doing.
Still I don't believe Leicester will be relegated this season or... that would be interesting...
