Although there are hostilities of the FA Cup in the United Kingdom at the moment, the Eglish Premier League still remembered to celebrate Nigeria midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi, on the day he signed for Leicester City three years ago.
EPL on its twitter handle posted the video clips of the Super Eagles player to mark the day he signed for Leicester City when he moved from the Belgian club, Genk to England.
The Premier League stated that Ndidi has been very impressive since he joined the English side three years ago.
Ndidi made his Belgian Pro League debut with Genk on 31 January 2015 against Charleroi in a 1–0 away defeat. He played the first 74 minutes of the game, before being substituted for Jarne Vrijsen.
