Leicester City will include Kelechi Iheanacho on their squad for Saturday’s Premier League game at Brighton even though he fractured his hand on international duty.
Iheanacho fractured his hand while training with Nigeria this week and so missed his team’s friendly against Serbia in London after he featured against Poland in Wroclaw.
He may now have to play with a special protective plaster around he injured hand.
Iheanacho, 21, has scored once in 15 appearances in the league for ‘The Foxes’ this season.
Leicester City are eighth on the table with 40 points from 30 points.
They are six points and four places clear of Brighton.
