Rodgers Declares Ndidi Fit For Leicester City  Vs Bournemouth

Wilfred Ndidi will return to action for Leicester City in Saturday’s Premier League home match against Bournemouth after making a quick recovery from a minor hamstring problem, reports Completesports.com.

The Nigeria international has missed The Foxes’ last two two games as a result of the injury-induced setback.

Ndidi picked up the injury in the side’s away game against Chelsea on matchday-two, where he scored Leicester’s goal in the 1-1 draw.

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers told a news conference on Friday that the midfielder will be available for selection again.

“Wilf [Wilfred Ndidi] is back in the squad. We could have maybe taken him in midweek, but we wanted to give him a good week’s training,” Rodgers stated.

Ndidi will however miss Nigeria’s upcoming friendly against Ukraine on September 10 at the Dnipro Arena after he was replaced with PAOK of Greece midfielder, Anderson Esiti by Nigeria head coach Gernot Rohr on Thursday.

He has made two appearances for the former Premier League champions this season and has scored once.

    Can anyone please advise Kelechi Iheanacho to leave Leicester(at least ion loan) to a club either in Holland, Spain, France or even Belgium.
    How on earth can a player like Kelechi choose to kill his promising career by not even making the matchday squad nowadays.

      He’ll leave the club or even UK soon, hopefully. By my calculation he’ll become a citizen either this year or next year (I think next year). So it’ll be easier for him, especially around Europe.
