(See Photo) Super Eagles Star Ndidi Training With Leicester Amid Injury ReportsSuper Eagles star Wilfred Ndidi is in contention to make his tenth appearance in all competitions this season when Leicester City host Hal Robson-Kanu's West Brom in the Premier League on Monday.

Speculation had been rife in the local and foreign media that the central midfielder was set for a spell on the sidelines after picking up what can now be rightly referred to as a phantom hamstring injury in Nigeria's 1-0 win over Zambia last weekend.

Ndidi was quick to dismiss those injury reports and further confirmation was received when he was photographed training with the Foxes, along with international teammate Kelechi Iheanacho, on Thursday.

After seven matches in the English top-flight, Ndidi leads the way in tackles, 28 in total, ahead of Chelsea's France star N'Golo Kanté, who has made one less than the Nigerian.

Assuming the number 25 starts against the Baggies, it would be the 15 straight game he has been named in the starting line-up spread over two seasons.

The 20-year-old has made 18 clearances, 10 interceptions, 10 headed clearances and won 24 aerial battles this season, more than any Nigerian in the English top-flight including Victor Moses, who plays more defensively for his club.
