Super Eagles Midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi will be assessed by Leicester City after suffering a suspected hamstring injury while on international duty with Nigeria.
Ndidi limped off late on in the Super Eagles’ 1-0 victory over Zambia on Saturday, which secured Nigeria’s qualification for the World Cup finals.
Nigeria insists Ndidi’s injury is not serious and, with City not playing until Monday night, it will give the Super Eagles midfielder a few more days to recover.
Any injury to Ndidi would further stretch Leicester’s already limited options in central midfield and leave only Andy King, Vicente Iborra, and Daniel Amartey as available players in that position.
Hamza Choudhury, who was nominated for Premier League 2 player of the month award for the second month in a row, could also be called on to step up.
Matty James is out with an Achilles injury, while Adrien Silva’s registration remains blocked by Fifa.
