Bolasie returned to training at Finch Farm this week after his loan spell at Sporting Lisbon was cut short during the coronavirus crisis.

Ghezzal joined Leicester City from Monaco for £13 million in 2018 but he has struggled to secure a first-team spot since Brendan Rodgers succeeded Claude Puel at the helm in February 2019.
