The player has recovered to his previous state as a result of the change.

Ndidi has scored three goals and provided one assist for the Foxes thus far this season across all competitions.

The 26-year-old said he is loving his new position.

Ndidi said on the When You’re Smiling Podcast of BBC Radio Leicester, “It’s been good, it’s the other part of my game.

“As a little child growing up, I was always a central defender. Later, I switched to the number six position, and now I love playing the number eight position.

“It’s just the way I am; I’m willing to play whatever position on the pitch that is available to me. Trying to be myself, enjoy football, and just have fun.
