Leicester City manager, Brendan Rodgers has revealed Wilfred Ndidi could be available for their second leg League Cup tie against Aston Villa on January 28.

 

The Super Eagles star has been out of action since suffering a knee injury in training on January 9, missing their Premier League defeats to Southampton and Burnley.

 

The 23-year-old had, however, teamed up with the rest of the Foxes’ stars in training after undergoing successful surgery.

 

Rodgers admitted the midfielder may not be ready for their Premier League game against West Ham United and their FA Cup tie with Brentford, but was optimistic the former Genk man would be available to face Aston Villa.

 

“He’s back out on the pitches now, which is great news for us. The importance of him is huge for this team,” Rodgers told Leicester Mercury.

 

“He’s recovering very well. He’s worked with medics. He’s been out on the field the last few days, so we‘ll see how he is.

 

“I think it will be too soon for him to be back for Wednesday’s game against West Ham, but certainly by the weekend and I would say for Aston Villa, hopefully, he will be available.”
