The good news for Leicester City is that Wilfred Ndidi is anticipated to return to action soon after suffering an injury on international duty.

The 25-year-old Nigerian midfielder has recently made his comeback to Super Eagles after missing the 2022 FIFA World Cup playoff against Black Stars of Ghana due to an injury he sustained in the Foxes UEFA Europa Conference League encounter with Stade Rennes in March.

Ndidi was forced to quit the Super Eagles training camp in Algeria after he injured his hamstrings.
