Iheanacho and Ndidi condemned to serving relegation terms as seven other players leave Leicester City



Nigeria’s Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho are among the players to remain at Leicester City following the relegation of the 2016 English Premier League champions.

However, seven other players will leave the club at the end of this month  when their contracts expire.

Among such players jumping the ship are Youri Tielemans, Caglar Soyuncu, Daniel Amartey, Nampalys Mendy, Ryan Bertrand, Ayoze Perez and Tete.

“The Football Club extends its thanks to all seven players for their contributions during their time with Leicester City and wishes them every success in the next stages of their respective careers,” Leicester said in a statement.

Dean Smith’s side failed to stay in the English top flight this season and were relegated after finishing 18th.


The club added that they are still in talks with captain Jonny Evans to extend his contract.
