EPL: Leicester City get Iheanacho boost ahead Newcastle United clash

Kelechi Iheanacho has returned to full training ahead of Leicester City’s Premier League clash against Newcastle United.

Iheanacho sustained a groin injury in the Foxes 1-1 draw against Leeds United at Elland Road last month.

The Nigeria international has missed the former Premier League champions last three games.

The 26-year-old has now returned to fitness for his side’s trip to Newcastle United on Monday.

“Kelechi was in training today, and he’ll be in full training on Saturday morning,” manager Dean Smith told a press conference on Thursday.

“Kels has ticked all the boxes he’d need to. We’ve probably had to press the fast-forward button, but it’s needs at the moment.”

Iheanacho has scored five goals and provided four assists in the Premier League this season.
