Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy is fit for Friday’s Premier League game against Newcastle United after recovering from a minor groin issue, manager Brendan Rodgers said.
Vardy scored two goals in Leicester’s 4-1 victory against relegated Huddersfield Town last Saturday and was substituted towards the end of the match with the problem.
“He’s absolutely fine. He felt a slight niggle in his groin towards the end of the game and rather than risk it, we took him off. He’s recovered well in the early stages this week and now he’s back as sharp as he usually is,” Rodgers said yesterday.
