Leicester City star Wilfred Ndidi has confirmed that he isn't averse to leaving King Power Stadium. Ndidi was prominent once again this past season after a successful yet slightly altered role in the starting team. With the news of a great club servant possibly leaving, LCFC fans seem divided on social media. Foxes of Leicester weigh in on the matter with opinions and explanations. There is also a believable and quite exciting rumour thrown in for good measure. We give our verdict on Blackburn Rovers' Sammie Szmodics, an apparent transfer target for the east Midlanders.

Is Sammie Szmodics worth signing?

From what I have seen of Szmodics, he is legit, the real deal. But would the versatile attacking midfielder compete as well as he has in the Premier League? Could he make the transition to the big time like fellow Peterborough alumnus Ivan Toney? I think so.

Szmodics' superb vision, key pass execution and understanding of the attacking side of the game, even at Championship level, is eye-catching. In my opinion, this fairly unique player could do a job for Leicester similarly to Tottenham Hotspur man, and former Fox, James Maddison.

With the future of industrious playmaker Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall uncertain, along with the currently more attack-minded Ndidi, there could be an ideal spot for Szmodics at Leicester. He could arguably be placed straight into the City lineup.

So, what are the rumours linking the 28-year-old to Filbert Way? Well, the Foxes are considering - if they haven't already - 'a summer proposal' in order to test Rovers' resolve. As put by Givemesport. Apparently West Ham United, who the Republic of Ireland international supported as a youngster, are not in the race to sign the No.8. There is an approximate £20 million price tag imposed by the Ewood Park side.

If a good chance comes to exit, Leicester City footballer Wilfred Ndidi wouldn't mind taking it

It is not often that you hear professional sportspeople suggest that they are up for leaving a club. Typically that sentiment especially applies following a successful title-winning campaign. But Ndidi, a likeable player, did admit to being open to ending his stay. He wouldn't be the worst loss, yet supporters are divided:

FoL will also quickly pass judgment on five other Leicester players with expiring contracts. The group consists of winger Marc Albrighton, forward Kelechi Iheanacho, striker Jamie Vardy, centreback Jannik Vestergaard and midfielder Dennis Praet.

Basically, Albrighton has implied that he's played his final Foxes match. Good Luck to the LCFC legend! Praet should finally go this summer, which is for the best. It looks like Iheanacho has no future at KPS; moving is the best outcome there. Vestergaard has earned a new deal and another crack at the English top-flight. And we all want Vardy to stay!
