Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has set a time-frame for Wilfred Ndidi’s return to training ahead of the 2019-20 season.
Prior to the continental tournament, the combative midfielder featured in all of the Foxes’ league matches last season and was ranked as the top tackler in the English top-flight.
"He [Ndidi] will be back towards the Atalanta game. He won’t be involved in that, but he will be training for a few days before that," Rodgers was quoted by Leicestershire Live.
"He will be available for the first game."
Leicester City will open their 2019-20 Premier League campaign against Wolverhampton Wanderers at the King Power Stadium on August 11.
