April, 26 2024.

Nigerian Super Eagles duo Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho have marked their triumphant return to the English Premier League (EPL) with Leicester City, following the club's promotion after Leeds United's defeat by QPR. The emphatic 4-0 victory for QPR at Loftus Road solidified Leicester City's position as Championship leaders, leaving Daniel Farke's side four points adrift with only one game remaining.

Ndidi and Iheanacho, integral members of Leicester City's squad, are poised to reach a milestone of amassing 100 points on their journey back to the top flight, a remarkable feat following their relegation last season. The duo's exceptional contributions have played a significant role in Leicester City's resurgence, propelling them to the brink of Championship glory.

With the opportunity to clinch the Championship title on Monday, Leicester City sets their sights on victory against Preston, contingent upon third-placed Ipswich failing to secure a win against Hull City on Saturday. The potential title win marks a momentous achievement for the club and underscores their dominance throughout the season.

As Ndidi and Iheanacho bask in the glory of Leicester City's imminent return to the Premier League, speculation looms regarding their future endeavors. Ndidi has attracted interest from prominent clubs including West Ham, Tottenham Hotspur, Bayern Munich, and Lazio, while Iheanacho remains a target for Turkish clubs such as Trabzonspor, Fenerbahçe, and Galatasaray.

The uncertainty surrounding their future adds intrigue to their next career moves, as fans eagerly await announcements regarding their potential destinations for the upcoming season. Whether they continue their journey in England or explore opportunities elsewhere remains to be seen, but their undeniable talent and contributions to Leicester City's success ensure they will be sought-after assets in the footballing world.
