Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers believes Wilfried Ndidi is recovering well after undergoing surgery on his knee.

The Foxes midfielder has been out of action since picking up the injury in training ahead of Leicester City’s League Cup clash with Aston Villa.

The former Genk man was one of the first names on Rodger’s team list, and his injury has proven a big blow to Leicester City.

Ndidi has missed the League Cup match against Aston Villa, and last weekend’s loss to Southampton. He is not expected to be back before Sunday’s clash with Burnley, but Rodgers is positive of his progress.

“Wes has been out, and he’s been back on training field, so we’ll assess him tomorrow to see if he’s okay for the weekend,” Rodgers told the club website.

“Wilfred Ndidi has made great progress, he’s out on training pitch working, which is great news for us, but he won’t be available for the weekend. We’ll see after that.”

Leicester, who currently sit third in the English Premier League standings behind Liverpool and Manchester City, will hope they can return to winning ways, and keep their title hopes alive.
