The Nigeria international has not featured for the Foxes since suffering a hamstring-related injury during the first half of the 1-1 draw with Everton on January 27.Speaking to reporters at Friday’s press conference manager Brendan Rodgers confirmed that Ndidi is close to making a return from injury but added that it’s touch-and-go whether he will be involved in some capacity against Wolves. On Ndidi’s fitness, the Northern Irishman said : “We’ll see with him over the next 24 hours, just whether it’s worth the risk or not,” Rodgers continued.
“He’s coming along very, very well. We’ll assess that. If not for the weekend, he’ll definitely be available for midweek (vs. Brighton & Hove Albion in the Emirates FA Cup Fifth Round).”
This season, Ndidi has missed as many as ten games in the Premier League as a result of injury
