Vardy's Fit & Raring To Go - Shakespeare
Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare has said that Jamie Vardy has fully recovered from his injury issue over the international break and he's in contention for West Bromwich Albion on Monday evening.
England striker Vardy missed out on international action as he was nursing a hip injury in recent weeks, but after a good period of rest over the international break, Shakespeare told lcfc.com as he met with the press this week, that the player was now back in full training and had no ill effects.
Ben Chilwell and Wilfred Ndidi have also been passed fit to face Tony Pulis' side.
'Jamie Vardy has fully recovered from his hip problem. He had the injections straight after the Bournemouth game. He was given a bit of time away because he wasn`t able to do anything. But he has trained fully this week every day and he has looked sharp. I am really pleased to report there are no ill effects from that. Going forward for us and the national team, if selected, he is back.'
Shakespeare went on to confirm Ndidi's fitness following his time out with Nigeria, and Chilwell has now recovered from the knee injury that saw him withdraw from the England Under 21 camp.
'It is always a strange week international week but playing Monday has helped us this time in terms of getting everyone back and getting a clean bill of health. There was a scare about Wilfred Ndidi but it was only cramp. He trained today fully. He is fine, no problems there. Ben Chilwell has trained today. He was a concern. It was against Liverpool when he took a dead leg. It was a swelling on the knee, which they took a precaution on, and I am grateful to England for doing that. He has been working indoors but has trained fully today. He is available for Monday.'
Robert Huth (ankle) and Matty James (Achilles) continue to be out for the game as they continue their own rehabilitation work.
Shakey ended by saying.
'All the internationals have returned with a good clean bill of health. In terms of injuries, Robert Huth and Matty James are longer term and won`t be available for Monday.'
