Ndidi told Leicester City TV shortly after the award on Monday night that he "feels very happy and delighted" to be a recipient on the night.
“Its so great to be rated alongside Demarai Gray and Chiwell,” said Ndidi, whose goal against Stoke City was also nominated for the goal of the season award.
“I believe if they had enough chances to play probably they would have won the award.”
