However, the center back will not feature for his club this weekend against Dortmund.
The news will come as a relief for Super Eagles Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr, who has been inundated with news of injuries to some of his regular players in the past weeks.
With just 41 days to the 2018 FIFA World Cup and 10 days before he’s expected to submit a provisional squad list, Rohr is still sweating over the fitness of Wilfred Ndidi, Ikechukwu Ezenwa, Tyronne Ebuehi and Alex Iwobi [even though he was named on Arsenal’s bench in Thursday’s Europa League semi-final].
