Since arriving from Belgian side Genk in January, Wilfred Ndidi has been doing a very impressive job in midfield for Leicester City.
The Foxes signed both Nampalys Mendy and Daniel Amartey last summer to help fill the void left by N'Golo Kante's departure for Chelsea, but both made the task look impossible until Ndidi came along.
Since his arrival, his all action work in midfield has been a big help in getting Danny Drinkwater back to his best, which in turn has seen the likes of Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez perform closer to the heights they hit last season, so it's inevitable that he will attract some interest.
However, The Express have been badly caught out by a completely fabricated story regarding Manchester United.
Craig Shakespeare has this week talked up the importance of keeping hold of the 20-year-old in the summer.
However, the Nigeria international's agent has claimed if Manchester United come knocking he will force through a move.
"Ndidi won’t say no to Manchester United," his agent Hakeem Bello told website OwnGoalNigeria.
Despite the story emanating from a site called OwnGoalNigeria.com, The Express ran the story and it has since emerged that the quotes have been fabricated.
Ndidi took to Twitter to completely rubbish the reports, claiming that he has never heard of the man reported to be his agent.
Please be informed this information is not true, I'm 200% with Leicester and i dont know this person called Hakeem bello pic.twitter.com/tafqTJ174b

There's transfer silly season, and then there's this.
Fair play to Ndidi for acting so swiftly, although it's crazy to see how quickly quotes pulled out of thin air can make their way back to the player in the world of modern football.
