Nigeria international Wilfred Ndidi has had a reaction to his operation according to Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers.

The Foxes travel to Molineux on Friday evening to tackle Wolverhampton Wanderers in an English Premier League match a fortnight following the 2-2 draw with Chelsea at King Power Stadium.

Ndidi recently returned to action after undergoing a successful knee operation, but he could miss the clash against Wolves.

“Wes (Morgan) is back in the squad and trained, so he’s come through that fine,” Rodgers said when providing an injury update on the club’s official website.

“Wilfred Ndidi is probably going to be doubtful for this game. He came back very, very quickly and played in the West Ham and Aston Villa games.

“But it was just a little reaction to his operation. We’ll see how he is.”

“Matty James wasn’t going to be fit enough at the start of the season to play as he was recovering from several issues,” he added.

“We didn’t want to put him under pressure. He’s been able to sustain that fitness now and we were able to include him in the squad.

“He’s working hard and getting fitter all the time. To have him as a possibility, with the quality I’ve seen in him, makes us very happy,” he continued.

“He’s played in some of the Under-23s games, the one at Newport, so it’s just a case of him continuing with that work.”

Ndidi, 23, has made 21 appearances in the Premier League this season and netted two goals in the process. (African Football)
