Nigerian star Wilfred Ndidi is set to leave English Championship side Leicester City at the end of the current season.

This is according to former Leeds United and Nottingham Forst midfielder Carlton Palmer who claims that at least four Premier League clubs are interested in Ndidi.

Palmer stated that Tottenham Hotspur, Aston Villa, Newcastle United and Wolverhampton Wanderers are all interested in signing the 27-year-old midfielder on a free transfer.

“Wilfred Ndidi, he is attracting a lot of interest, a lot of attention, from Premier League clubs,” Palmer said on Football League World.

“Spurs, Aston Villa, Newcastle, Wolves to name four. Wilfred Ndidi is out of contract in the summer. He has been an integral part this season, although he has picked up some injuries, he has done really well for them.

“But with Ndidi’s huge wages of (an estimated) £75,000 a week, Leicester may choose to offload him in the summer and bring their wage bill down,” he added.

“It will be a bitter blow, but five clubs are keeping tabs on him, and there is reported interest from abroad as well with the likes of Barcelona.”

Ndidi, who has been on the books of Leicester since 2017, has recorded ten goal involvements (four goals, six assists) in 24 competitive matches for Leicester this season.
