Wilfred Ndidi has received his work permit to start of his career in England following his £15m transfer from Genk of Belgium to champions Leicester City, Owngoalnigeria.com understands.

Ndidi arrived England yesterday and had a photo shot session with the club photographers for his first set of pictures in a Leicester City shirt, which will go live later in the day on the official website of the Foxes.

He is expected to have his first training session with the team, which will determine his level of fitness ahead of a potential debut this weekend, after crossing the work permit hurdle.

His last competitive game was two weeks ago, when he put up a 90 minute shift for Genk to help them to a 2-0 win over Gent. Since then he has been on holiday in Dubai with his girlfriend.

The 19 year old Nigerian defender cum midfielder is now eligible to face Everton this weekend when they tackle Leicester City in the English FA Cup.
