Ndidi’s Contract Situation

With his contract set to expire at the end of the current season, Ndidi represents a financially attractive option for Crystal Palace. The 27-year-old Nigerian midfielder has been a key player for Leicester in the Championship, contributing three goals and five assists over 29 games. His availability on a free transfer, due to Leicester’s ongoing EFL registration embargo related to financial irregularities, makes him an even more appealing target.

Potential Double Swoop

The interest in Ndidi might not be isolated. Kelechi Iheanacho, another Leicester player nearing the end of his contract, is also reportedly on Crystal Palace’s radar. This could indicate a broader strategy by Palace to strengthen their squad by leveraging Leicester’s precarious contract situation.

Crystal Palace’s approach reflects a clear strategic intent to enhance their team with proven Premier League talent without the hefty transfer fees, a savvy move in today’s economically inflated football market.
