Allnigeriasoccer.com understands that Super Eagles star Wilfred Ndidi is gearing up to resume pre-season training with Leicester City ahead of the 2018-2019 campaign.
The Nigeria number four was among three Leicester City players that represented the Super Eagles at the ongoing World Cup in Russia, the others being Ahmed Musa and Kelechi Iheanacho, and the trio were absent at Belvoir Drive on Monday morning.
Ndidi has said that he will be in England but will officially resume whenever he gets a call from manager Claude Puel, though Leicester City said it is okay for him to rest for one more week.
A hamstring injury kept the Leicester City Young Player of the Year out of action at the tail end of last season but he recovered in time to star for Nigeria at the World Cup.
The defensive midfielder made his World Cup debut against Croatia on June 16, before going the distance against Iceland and Argentina.
The Foxes will face Notts County, Valencia CF and Lille OSC in pre-season games before their first competitive game of the new season against Manchester United on August 11.
Got to love the Big Bad Wilf!
