Super Eagles midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi is expected to undergo a medical test to be conducted today by Leicester’s doctors to find out the extent of his injury in last weekend’s FIFA World Cup qualifier against Zambia in Uyo.

Ndidi, who was on the pitch for all 90 minutes collapsed in a heap of pain clutching his hamstring muscle after attempting a shot from outside the Zambian box. Though Super Eagles medical crew gave the player a clean bill of health, Leicester insists he will be examined to ascertain if Ndidi had picked up hamstring injury. As Leicester prepare for their English Premier League clash with West Brom next week Monday.

Any injury to Ndidi would further stretch Leicester’s already limited options in central midfield, and leave only Andy King, Vicente Iborra and Daniel Amartey as available players in that position.

Matty James is out with an Achilles injury, while Adrien Silva’s registration remains blocked by Fifa .
