Leicester City coach Brendan Rodgers has revealed that Wilfred Ndidi will be out of action until February after sustaining a knee injury in training.
The Super Eagles midfielder missed Leicester City’s 1-1 draw with Aston Villa on Wednesday after picking up the injury in training ahead of the Carabao cup clash.
“Wilf took a knock in training yesterday, which unfortunately means he might need a slight operation,”
“It was just unfortunate, he nicked his meniscus just changing direction.
You’re looking at around three or four weeks (out), so he’ll probably miss most of January and early February, and then he will be back by then.”
Ndidi has been one of the most influential players for Leicester City this season playing twenty matches in the league with two goals and one assist.
Leicester City will be back in premier league action at the King Power Stadium against Southampton on Sunday.
