With former  champions now experiencing life in the second-tier English league, the duo of Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho are set to jump ship to retain their English Premier League status.

According to famed expert on transfer matters, Fabrizio Romano, Ndidi is set to become the fourth Nigerian international star at Nottingham Forest along with Taiwo Awoniyi, Ola Aina and Emmanuel Dennis after he agreed personal terms with the Premier League club.

The defensive midfielder who experienced a torrid time out at the King’s Power Stadium last season is determined to pick the bits and pieces of his career at Forest. Leicester City were relegated this past season.

Forest are expected to table a formal bid for Ndidi, 26, and push to get the move over the line before the transfer window closes Friday night.

Transfermarkt values Ndidi at 25 Million Euros.

His contract with ‘The Foxes’ is up next June and should he not sign a new contract with Leicester City, he could walk away a free agent next year

Meanwhile, Wolverhampton Wanderers are also believed to be weighing up a move for Ndidi’s Nigeria and Leicester City teammate, Kelechi Iheanacho.

According to Football Insider, Wolves have identified Iheanacho, as well as three other potential striker signings, as a realistic late-window target.

The Nigeria international has also been linked with a move to Crystal Palace.

Iheanacho was a key performer for Leicester City last season despite the club’s relegation from the Premier League.
