Nigeria’s Wilfred Ndidi was named Leicester City’s Young Player of the Year despite only linking up with the Foxes in January. The midfielder joined from Genk in a deal worth £18m and soon became a crucial member of Craig Shakespeare’s side. He made 15 appearances in the Premier League, scoring twice. Leicester honoured their players with goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel winning the two biggest awards at their end-of-season ceremony on Monday evening. The Dane, who has been linked with a host of top clubs after a stellar season, picked up Players’ Player of the Year and the Player of the Year to underline his importance to the club.
