The 21-year-old has played a pivotal role for Leicester City this season as a defensive midfielder and impressively lead the Premier League’s overall tackling charts with 138 interventions to date.

Ndidi was announced the winner of the awards at the 2018 Leicester City Awards Dinner that held at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday, May 1.


The Nigerian midfielder, however, lost the Players’ Player of the Year and Player of the Year awards to his teammate and defender Harry Maguire.

Maguire beat Ndidi and Jamie Vardy to win the two awards.

Iheanacho was nominated for the Young Player of the Year but was beaten to it by Ndidi.


Ndidi has been very impressive since he joined Leicester City from KRC Genk of Belgium in January 2017.

Despite playing just half a season, Ndidi was voted the 2017 Leicester City’s Young Player of the Year and has picked up the award again in his second season at the club.
