Claudio Ranieri says new Leicester signing Wilfred Ndidi is settling in and could make his debut as soon as this weekend.
Ndidi joined up with his new team-mates at training on Thursday after completing his move from Genk for a reported £15m.
“Everything with the work permit is OK. He trained today, he is available for Saturday and all is fine,” Ranieri said.
“Today was his first [training session]. He was OK and I want to see tomorrow and then I’ll choose [the team for the weekend].”
“He’s an impressive player with a big future,” said manager Claudio Ranieri.
“I feel I can learn a lot here,” Ndidi told the club’s TV channel.
“I try to win the balls for the team – that is one of my main attributes. I have to achieve a lot here.”
Ndidi helped Genk finish top of their Europa League group to secure their place in the knockout stages of this season’s competition.
