The midfielder is on the verge of reinforcing the faltering Premier League champions after a deal was agreed for his signature with Genk

Leicester City have secured their first signing of the Janaury transfer window in Genk starlet Wilfred Ndidi, claims Sky Sports.

The ailing Premier League champions have been linked with the Nigeria midfielder over the month of December, and it appears a move is finally nearing completion.

Ndidi will arrive at the Foxes in the first days of the new year in a fee that could go as high as £15 million.

The 20-year-old has yet to be granted a work permit but it is reported that every other detail has been ironed out.
