Leicester City's Kelechi Iheanacho breaks hand playing for Nigeria

Leicester City expect Kelechi Iheanacho to be available on Saturday against Brighton despite breaking his hand.

The forward suffered the injury while on international duty with Nigeria and he was not named among the substitutes for their 2-0 defeat to Serbia in Barnet on Tuesday.

He fractured the first metacarpal in his right hand and will be further assessed by Leicester's medical staff before returning to training on Thursday.

The 21-year-old joined the Foxes from Manchester City in August 2017 on a five-year deal.

Since then he has made 15 Premier League appearances scoring one but has managed four goals in five FA cup matches.
