EPL: Wilfred Ndidi, 9 other players to leave relegated Leicester City


Super Eagles midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi, could be set for a summer move from Leicester City this summer.

The Foxes are looking to sell some of their biggest stars following their relegation to the Championship.

James Maddison, 26, is set to be the first out of the door with Newcastle long admirers. Leicester are likely to value him for more than £50m and will have to hope there is a bidding war for his signature to drive up his value.

Tottenham are also interested as they look to improve their midfield options while Arsenal are keeping tabs but their No1 transfer target is Declan Rice and may not move for Maddison unless they can offload and then look to strengthen.

Leicester will be forced to balance the books this summer as their relegation from the Premier League will be devastating from a financial perspective.

They may have to sell Harvey Barnes and Wilfred Ndidi as part of the fire sale while they have seven players out of contract.

Caglar Soyuncu, Jonny Evans, Daniel Amartey, Ryan Bertrand, Papy Mendy, Ayoze Perez and Youri Tielemans all become free agents.

Belgium star Tielemans, who scored Leicester’s winner in the FA Cup final two years ago, is likely to be in demand but his stock has certainly fallen in the past two seasons.

That will certainly ease the wage bill at Leicester but they will also have to sell to survive and prepare to make an immediate return to the top flight.
