Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers is considering deploying Wilfred Ndidi as a centre-back in Sunday’s Premier League away fixture against West Bromwich Albion, reports Completesports.com.
The Foxes have only centre-half available for the trip to the Hawthorns.
Johnny Evans is suspended for the game following his red card in last season’s final fixture against Manchester United.

Wes Morgan and Filip Benkovic are both nursing injuries , leaving Caglar Soyuncu as the only fit centre-back for the game against Baggies.
Ndidi featured as a centre-half during his time with Belgian Pro League side KRC Genk.
Rodgers insists playing the Nigeria international in the position is a possibility.
“He’s one of the best midfield players in the league, that’s his position. I like to have a midfield who can play in a back three. He’s got the attributes, his reading of the game is very good. If I need to play him there, he will do a good job,” Rodgers told a news conference on Friday.
