Leicester City midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi will return to training this weekend manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed.
Ndidi missed the Foxes 2-2 home draw against Brighton & Hove Albion last week after picking up an injury in training.
Rodgers stated last week that the Nigeria international will be out for a couple of weeks.
But the gaffer has now hinted that the player will be back on grass on Friday (today).
“Thankfully [Dennis Praet’s injury], it’s not as bad [as first feared]. There’s was a lot of pain but no ligament damage. He trained well today,”Rodgers said of Leicester City’s Emirates fourth round tie at Walsall “[Wilfred Ndidi will] be out on the grass tomorrow [Friday].”
The 25-year-old has made 16 league appearances for the Foxes this season.
