Kelechi Iheanacho is in a race against time to be fit for Leicester City’s weekend Premier League game against Brighton & Hove.

According to Leicester City boss Claude Puel, Iheanacho who was missing in action for Nigeria in the Serbia game will undergo a late fitness test on Friday to determine his availability for the weekend game.

It is understood that Iheanacho broke his hand during the Poland friendly and his inclusion in the provisional roster for the trip to The American Express Community Stadium remains shaky.

Initial diagnosis suggests that Iheanacho's injury is not as bad as first feared and he will not spend a long time in the treatment room.

'''[Almost] all the players are [fit]. Just Iheanacho, who has a broken hand, and James. We will see if [Iheanacho] can play with this injury,'' Puel said to Leicester City's official website.

''We will see tomorrow in the training session. He fell but it’s not a [bad] injury. We will see if this injury will prevent him from playing [at Brighton] or not.

"It’s not an important injury but it might be strange to play with.''

In 23 appearances in all competitions this season, Iheanacho has found the net six times, while providing three assists.
