Midfielder Andy King is expected to be fit for Leicester ahead of the Foxes Premier League clash with Tottenham, according to a report.
King, 27, suffered an injury suffered an injury last into Saturday’s match against Crystal Palace, which forced him off on the 87th minute.
However, the Leicester Mercury have reported that the Wales international could be set for a quick return and be in line to face Mauricio Pochettino’s side on the weekend.
The report details that King had also missed training last Thursday after suffering a knock on his shin during the Champions League win over Copenhagen.
A mainstay in Claudio Ranieri’s midfield, he would provide a boost to the Foxes with Papy Mendy currently out injured and Matty James just returning from an injury himself and not deemed fit enough.
Tottenham will welcome Ranieri’s team at White Hart Lane with Spurs currently unbeaten in England’s top flight and Leicester struggling to recapture last season’s form.
The Foxes are currently sat in 12th in the league, while Spurs are in fifth and the north London club will be keen to beat their opponents as they look to improve on their third place finish from last year.
