Wilfred Ndidi

Super Eagles midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi, has won Leicester City’s Young Player of the Year award.

The 20-year-old only joined the Foxes in January from Genk.

Ndidi beat Ben Chiwell and Demarai Gray to the award, after scoring two English Premier League goals in 15 appearances.

“It’s so great to be rated alongside Demarai Gray and Chiwell,” Ndidi, whose goal against Stoke City was also nominated for the goal of the season award, told Leicester City TV.

“I believe if they had enough chances to play probably they would have won the award.”

Goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel won the Players’ Player of the Season award, while Danny Drinkwater took home the Goal of the Season award for his strike against Liverpool.
