Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi is expected to be back in action soon after picking up an injury on international duty.

Ndidi returned to England last week as a result of injury.

Super Eagles head coach, Jose Peseiro explained that City’s fitness team had passed on a message to the Super Eagles to say that the player had complained of a hamstring tweak following the club’s 6-2 defeat to Tottenham prior to the international break.

Now, Oluwashima Okeleji, a BBC Sport reporter in Africa, has said that scans show Ndidi has suffered a grade one hamstring tear.

The 25-year-old is expected to be fit for Leicester City’s next Premier League game against Nottingham Forest on Monday, October 3.

He missed the latter part of last campaign as a result of injury.
