Leicester City midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi could be sidelined for up to three months with an abductor injury, manager Brendan Rodgers said.

The 23-year-old Nigeria international sustained the injury in Sunday’s 4-2 Premier League win over Burnley and missed their 2-0 home defeat by Arsenal in the League Cup on Wednesday.

“We are just waiting to hear more about that, but he could be anything between six and 12 weeks.

“It is an abductor injury — it may have come off the bone which could be a nasty injury, so we will wait to see if needs an operation — if it does then it will be 12 weeks,” Rodgers told reporters.
Ndidi had filled in as a makeshift center back for Leicester in their victories over West Bromwich Albion and Burnley.

Rodgers’ side faces Manchester City in the Premier League on Sunday.
