Championship: Leicester struggling to keep Ndidi, Iheanacho

Ndidi, Iheanacho

Leicester City have been struggling to retain the services of Nigerian duo Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho, with several clubs looking to land them in January.

Both Foxes stars will be out of contract at the end of the season and with several clubs considering a move for Ndidi and Iheanacho in January, Leicester could be forced into letting them go if they cannot tie them down to fresh terms before then.

The Foxes have enjoyed an excellent start to the 2023/24 season as they eye a return to the Premier League winning 13 of their 15 Championship matches so far, losing two, and currently sit four points clear at the top of the table.

Ndidi has been key to Leicester’s early success and is undoubtedly one of their best players. The midfielder has made 15 appearances in all competitions this term, scoring three goals and making four assists.

As for Iheanacho, he has featured 17 times for the Foxes this season finding the back of the net six times and making two assists.

According to TEAMtalk, Leicester have been working hard to tie both Ndidi and Iheanacho down to new contracts but there has been no breakthrough.

Ndidi has been with Leicester since 2017 and has become a hugely popular figure. Still, the 26-year-old is now garnering interest from across Europe with Barcelona and Atletico Madrid inquiring about the midfielder, while Lyon and Monaco are also keen.

However, there is also interest from within the Premier League with Tottenham, Newcastle, Aston Villa and Brentford amongst those considering a January approach for Ndidi.

TEAMtalk reports that Brentford who could replace Ivan Toney in January are one of the teams showing a keen interest in Iheanacho. There is also interest from Crystal Palace and West Ham in the striker.
