📢JUST IN : Everton transfer target reportedly valued at over £50 million, has officially become a free agent following the expiration of his contract

Wilfred Ndidi’s contract with Leicester City has officially expired. 

The midfielder’s contract with the Foxes expired on June 30, meaning he has now become a 0 free agent – after being linked with a move to Everton.

Ndidi has spent the last seven-and-a-half years at the King Power Stadium after signing from Genk for £17m in January 2017.

Ndidi was part of the Leicester team that won the FA Cup in 2021. And although the Foxes were relegated from the Premier League in the 2022-23 season, the Nigeria international has remained at the club. 

He immediately helped them gain promotion back to the top flight as Leicester won the league title. Ndidi has a total of six goals and six assists in 36 games. 

And although the Foxes have offered the 27-year-old new terms, they have not been signed. Ndidi admitted this summer that he would be ready for a new challenge.

He told completesports.com: “It’s nice to be back in the Premier League after being relegated and fighting back in the EPL is actually something we don’t want to go back to. I think morale is high, expectations are high, we have to make sure we don’t go back to the Championship. It’s hard to play. If a good opportunity presents itself, I wouldn’t mind trying my luck elsewhere, but for now I will remain a Leicester City player.”

Ndidi was linked with a £50million move to Aston Villa in 2022. But then Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers insisted: “He’s worth a lot more than that.”

Rodgers added: “Obviously you always want to keep a player of that quality and mentality, but when you’ve got that player he’s always going to attract interest. But he seems to have settled in here a lot. I know he’s moved to a new house and it seems he is very, very happy to work with him and I hope he can be at the club for many years to come.”

Football Insider reported last week that Everton were chasing Ndidi.
