The transformation has yielded positive result with the player now back to his usual self.
Ndidi has so far registered three goals and one assist across all competitions for the Foxes this term.
The 26-year-old stated that he is enjoying the positional switch.
“It’s been good, it’s the other side of my game,” Ndidi told told BBC Radio Leicester’s When You’re Smiling Podcast.
“As a child growing up I’ve always been a central defender and then turning into a number six and now enjoying the number eight position.
“It’s just the way I am, having an open mind to play any position I can possibly play on the pitch. Just trying to enjoy football, be myself and enjoy football.”
