If the reports coming from Leicester City is to be considered, then Super Eagles midfielder Wilfred Ndidi is set to be ruled out for a long time.

The lanky midfielder coped up a hamstring injury in the 2018 World Cup qualifier between Super Eagles of Nigeria and the Chipolopolo of Zambia on Saturday.

After undergoing a scan on Tuesday , the extent of his injury is still unknown and he is scheduled to report to the club where tests will determine how long he will have to miss the game.

His absence will surely affect the former English champions as the midfielder has been a one-man army in the Leicester midfield.

His £17m arrival from Genk allowed him to take control of things and he has
been pretty influential for the Foxes in almost every game. He has been tireless in the middle of the pitch and has been pushing the team from the middle.

Meanwhile, if the player is ruled out up to a month then he will miss Nigeria’s last World Cup qualifier against the Desert Foxes of Algeria in early November.
