A report claims that Leicester City are closing in on a £14m deal for Genk's Wilfred Ndidi after agreeing terms with the Belgian outfit.

Premier League champions Leicester City are reportedly 'in advanced talks' with Genk over a deal for Nigerian teenager Wilfred Ndidi.

The 19-year-old, who can operate in both midfield and defence, made his international debut for Nigeria last year and it is understood that his performances this season have attracted a host of interest.

According to The Telegraph, however, Leicester have agreed a £14m deal with Genk and are confident of agreeing personal terms with the teenager ahead of a move to the King Power Stadium next month.

Ndidi represented Nathaniel Boys of Lagos in his native Nigeria before joining Genk after a successful trial.

Leicester are expected to be active in the winter transfer window as they look to improve on what has been a disappointing Premier League title defence thus far.
