- Wilfred Ndidi has been ruled out till February due to minor injury
- The Super Eagles ace got injured in training and he is set for minor operation
- Ndidi has been an integral part of Leicester squad since the beginning of the campaign
Super Eagles and Leicester star, Wilfred Ndidi, has been ruled out of pitch action till February with the ace midfielder set to undergo minor surgery.
Ndidi was a surprise omission in the Foxes squad that faced Aston Villa on Wednesday night in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg at King Power Stadium.
Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers has now disclosed that he picked up a knock in training on Tuesday, January 7, and may be left on the sidelines for close to four weeks.
"Wilf took a knock in training yesterday, which unfortunately means he might need a slight operation tomorrow," Rodgers said.
"That'll put him out for a few weeks, but it's not overly serious, so hopefully, going into February, he'll be fit and ready to go again."
Ndidi joined Leicester in a mouth-watering £17m deal from KRC Genk in 2017 and has bagged two goals for the Premier League second leader.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that Kelechi Iheanacho has continued to impress his Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers since he was given the opportunity to feature in games this season.
The Nigerian international has now scored six goals for the Foxes in seven appearances in all competitions, with his latest goal coming in as 75th minute equalizer against Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup semi final.
