Super Eagles of Nigeria midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi could be in action for Leicester City against Nottingham Forest on October 3 in their English Premier League (EPL) fixture.
The 25-year-old pulled out of the Nigeria squad to face Algeria ahead of the international friendly billed for September 27 after sustaining a minor hamstring tear in training.
Following that injury setback, rumours were rife that Ndidi could be out on for a longer period. However, that has been quashed as he could be available for the Foxes’ outing against Steve Cooper’s Reds.
A statement from Leicester Mercury according to popular sports journalist, Shina Okeleji’s tweet claimed the Genk man had a grade one hamstring tear: “Leicester are hoping Wilfred Ndidi will recover from his hamstring injury in time for the fixture vs Nottingham Forest on October 3.
“He withdrew from the Nigeria squad vs Algeria after sustaining the problem in training. Leicester City scans revealed he picked up a grade one tear.”
