Relegated Super Eagles stars dominates 50 most valuable players in the EFL

Three Nigerian football talents, Wilfried Ndidi, Kelechi Iheanacho, and Paul Onuachu, have made their mark in the English Football League’s top 50 Most Valuable Player rankings, according to Sporty9ja. Ndidi secured an impressive 9th place, Iheanacho claimed the 22nd spot, and Onuachu secured the 40th spot in the PlanetFootball rankings.

Despite Ndidi’s injury, he showcased his exceptional defensive abilities and tactical awareness for Leicester City. He has become a crucial component of the team, although his efforts to secure the East-Midland’s survival in the English Premier League fell short.

Iheanacho, another key player for Leicester, made a significant impact with his goal-scoring prowess in the FA Cup and Premier League. His outstanding performances earned him the prestigious Player of the Season award.

Onuachu’s goal-scoring abilities were expected to enhance Southampton’s attacking strength when he joined the team during the January transfer window. However, he is yet to find the back of the net in nine games since his arrival in England.

While Joe Aribo missed out on the top 50 rankings, his performances for Rangers FC in Scotland and Southampton before the World Cup break have gained attention and recognition.

Although there is a possibility that these players might not feature in an EFL match, as Iheanacho is being linked with a potential move to join Taiwo Awoniyi at Nottingham Forest and there is interest from Besiktas J.K and Galatasaray surrounding Joe Aribo.
