Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi has been photographed back on the pitches at the club's Seagrave training ground ahead of this weekend's match against Manchester City.
The 25-year-old has missed the last four Premier League matches after being substituted at half-time against Nottingham Forest at the start of this month. It is a hamstring issue that has sidelined Ndidi for the majority of October, with manager Brendan Rodgers admitted after last weekend's win against Wolverhampton Wanderers that they "didn’t want to take the risk" of involving the returning midfielder at Molineux.
Boubakary Soumaré has been deputising as holding midfielder in the meantime, with Nampalys Mendy also returning to the side as a substitute for his fellow Francophone in th middle for the past three matches after recovering from a knee injury. Jonny Evans is also due to be returning to training this week, but it is Ndidi who has been captured on camera.

A selection of photos showing the playing in action at Seagrave have been posted across the club's official social media accounts on Wednesday morning. With the Facebook and Instagram post accompanied by the caption: "Wilf's back on the training pitches as he continues his recovery from a hamstring injury."
One image notably shows Ndidi in contact and trying to win possession back off of first-team physiotherapist Gary Silk, who is shielding a football from the midfielder. The others show the player working at drills with and without the ball on his own, with no teammates featured in the photos suggesting that team training was not yet on the agenda.
City decision fans didn't want was 'common sense' but not easy, says Rodgers
