Brendan Rodgers provides update on Vardy Ndidi, Morgan, Castagne, Fofana ahead of Fulham clash

Jamie Vardy could be back in contention for Leicester City soon, but is likely to miss Wednesday's Premier League trip to Fulham, manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed.

Vardy underwent minor hernia surgery over recent weeks and has been absent for fixtures against Brentford, Everton and Leeds United for the fourth-placed Foxes. 



Rodgers said on Monday, while Wilfred Ndidi is also progressing well after a hamstring complaint.

"We’re hopeful that Jamie, towards the weekend, won’t be too far away, which will be great news for us," the City manager told the media at LCFC Training Ground. "That’s what we anticipate with him.

"Wilf won’t be too much longer after that. It’s just the nature of this season. If you look at how compact the games are and the intensity of them, it’s very, very difficult for players.


Rodgers also provided an update on Timothy Castagne after the Belgium international was withdrawn against Leeds with a hamstring complaint, while also detailing an issue for Wesley Fofana.

"We picked up a few injuries yesterday (Sunday)," the Northern Irishman added. "Tim felt a little bit in the warm-up and tried to give it a go in the game, but he just wasn’t quite right.

"We’ll wait and see what the scan says, but we think he’ll be out for a small period of time. Wesley Fofana, we’ll assess.

"He came off for a tactical reason, but he felt something in his hamstring as well, so we’ll just see where that’s at over the next 24 hours."

Club captain Wes Morgan, on the other hand, has been afforded a period of recuperation time after a back issue, as Rodgers also explained in the King Power Centre in Seagrave. 

"He’s had ongoing issues with his back," he said. "We decided a couple of weeks ago, or 10 days ago, to take him out of training and availability for games to let that settle down.

"He’s working well with the medical team and that’s the reason why he hasn’t been involved for the last couple of weeks."
