LONDON, Jan 29 (Reuters) - Leicester City midfielder Wilfred
Ndidi will be out for up to 10 days but striker Jamie Vardy's
recovery is progressing well after his minor hernia operation,
manager Brendan Rodgers said on Friday.
Rodgers said Nigeria international Ndidi, who was
substituted in Wednesday's draw at Everton, had a slight tear to
his hamstring.
"He will be out for eight to 10 days. Sometimes those can be
a lot longer than that, so we're fortunate," he said.
Rodgers said Vardy was on schedule after his operation six
days ago, although the club had yet to set a date for his
return.
"Having been sore initially, I saw him in the gym today and
he's starting to run. He's progressing really well... we'll look
to get him training after 10 days following the operation and
we're on course for that."
Centre back Jonny Evans, who suffered blurred vision in
midweek, is available.
Leicester are third in the standings, two points behind
leaders Manchester City who have a game in hand.
The Foxes beat Leeds, now in 12th place, 4-1 last November
in their first Premier League clash for 16 years.
Rodgers said his side had strength in depth to manage the
injuries.
"We played very well in midweek and we'll look to take that
into our next game. If you shine a light over the course of the
season, we've had important players who have been missing
consistently," he said.
He indicated midfielder Hamza Choudhury, of interest to
Newcastle United, would not leave unless a replacement was found
before the end of the transfer window on Monday.
"I've spoken to (Newcastle manager) Steve (Bruce) on Hamza.
We've always felt we need another more attacking midfield player
in. If we can do that, that may well give the possibility for
Hamza to go out," he said.
"Otherwise we can't afford to lose anyone if we can't get
anyone in."
