Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers believes Wilfred Ndidi is fit to play against Wolverhampton Wanderers in their opening 2019-20 Premier League game on Sunday.
Subsequently, the former Genk man was given an extended holiday and missed the start of the Foxes’ pre-season.
"Wilfred Ndidi and Filip Benkovic have been working very well since coming back,” Rodgers said in a pre-match press conference.
“Wilf's naturally fit and will be in the squad this weekend. All the players have come through really well and there are no real injuries."
Ndidi was the Premier League's best tackler last season and his defensive displays helped Leicester to finish ninth in the table.
