Nottingham Forest are reportedly closing in on a move for Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi.

TalkSPORT reports that Forest are looking to strengthen their midfield before the end of the transfer window on Friday.

Reports suggest that they are close to signing Nigerian midfielder Ndidi from East Midlands rivals Leicester City.

Ndidi has just one year left on his contract at Leicester and reports have suggested that he would be keen on a return to the Premier League, despite of playing a key role at the King Power Stadium.
