A close source to inform Genk of Belgium Nigerian midfielder Wilfred Ndidi has confirmed to Owngoalnigeria.com that the 19 year old is a subject of a €6m bid from German side Hamburg.

Comfortable as a central defender, He has shown like a million stars this season for Genk playing in an unfamiliar defensive midfield role where he has also moved upfield to score vital goals for his team.

He presently has four goals to his name with two assists and Hamburg who escaped relegation to the second tier in Germany are set to make a swoop for him even though he recently signed a contract extension with Genk.

“To my own understanding there was a bid in the region of €6m although incentive based for Ndidi by Hamburg, Genk are refusing to negotiate as he only recently penned a new four year deal” A source close to the player told Owngoalnigeria.com.

When we sought to get clarification if it’s true that Borrussia Dortmund are also eyeing the 19 year old, we were told they only made an inquiry but didn’t firm it up with a bid or contract proposal.

“It was just an inquiry to sound out Genk over his availability and since they got a response they didn’t come back with a bid, that is the best I know”.
