Leicester City hope Wilfred Ndidi will be fit in time for a crucial Premier League clash at home against fellow strugglers Nottingham Forest.
The match is slated for October 3 and a win could spark off the revival of ‘The Foxes’.
Ndidi was forced to quit the Super Eagles training camp in Algeria after he injured his hamstrings.
His English club have since disclosed that he suffered a Grade 1 hamstring injury and that means he could be back for a crucial game at Forest.
Leicester City are bottom of the table with a point after seven rounds of matches, while promoted Forest are second from bottom with four points.
