Ndidi, Iheanacho Set For Spain Trip With Leicester Team Ahead Chelsea FA Cup GameNigerian duo of Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho will be traveling to Spain with the rest of their Leicester City teammates on Tuesday for a four-day training camp ahead of an FA Cup clash against Chelsea on Sunday, March 18.

Leicester City manager Claude Puel believes the warm weather camping in Southern Spain will be the tonic his team need to face the might of Antonio Conte's Chelsea in their quarter finals game with the Blues.

Leicester head into the mini break buoyed by the 4-1 win over West Bromwich Albion on Saturday in which Iheanacho scored and created an assist for one of the goals.

“It’s a good opportunity for the squad to spend some time together and to make sure we are well prepared both for next weekend’s game and for the final eight Premier League matches of the season,” Puel told the club's website, www.lcfc.com.

“It’s a long season, which can be difficult for the body and the mind, so a different setting, some time together as a squad and a good focus on our work will be good for everybody.

“We want to finish the season in the best way possible and good preparation together is very important to give us the best chance,” Puel stressed.

The Foxes overcame Sheffield United 1-0 in the fifth round of the FA Cup in February.

Leicester are currently eighth in the Premier League after their win over the weekend took their points' haul to 40 n 30 games.
