Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed Wilfred Ndidi will undergo surgery which will rule him out of action for the rest of January.

The 23-year-old midfielder picked up a knock in training on Tuesday and missed their League Cup tie against Aston Villa on Wednesday night.

“He took a knock in training yesterday. Unfortunately, he might need to have a slight operation tomorrow [Thursday] which will put him out for a few weeks. That’s just unfortunate,” Rodgers told the club website.

“But it’s not overly serious. Hopefully into February, he will be fit and ready to go again.”

The Nigeria international has made 24 appearances across all competitions this season before the injury setback.
