AfricanFootball.com was specially informed by one of the player’s handlers that his Nigerian club, Nath Boys of Lagos, were paid 200,000 Euros when he was transferred to Genk in January 2015.
Genk, according to competent sources, have maintained they are not willing to break up their exciting young team for at least this season and so have placed an embargo on the likes of young Jamaica striker Leon Bailey and Ndidi quitting soon.
“Genk believe they have a young and exciting team and have moved to ensure this team is not broken up at least for the new season,” a representative of Ndidi told AfricanFootball.com
“They have some exciting players like Leon bailey and Ndidi and insist these boys are not going anywhere soon.
“In the case of Ndidi, they have reviewed his valuation to eight million Euros and he got an improved contract.”
In January, Genk rejected a six million Euros bid from German Bundesliga outfit Hamburg for the Nigeria star.
It was also confirmed that Premier League club Watford made a formal bid for the 19-year-old defensive midfielder.
