Jamie Vardy injury update ahead of Leicester’s clash with Fulham

Footage emerging across social media this afternoon has suggested that Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy will be fit to feature versus Fulham this weekend.

Leicester vs Fulham

The Foxes are set to welcome struggling Fulham to the King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon, for a Premier League clash.

Hosts Leicester will head into the matchup hoping for a bounce-back performance, after the debut of new boss Brendan Rodgers last weekend was spoiled by an injury-time defeat at Watford.

Fulham, meanwhile, also fell to a defeat last time out, in their first outing under the guidance of Scott Parker.

The Cottagers put in a brave showing versus Chelsea at Craven Cottage, but ultimately came up short in a 2-1 defeat.

Vardy boost

In anticipation of Saturday’s clash at the King Power, Leicester have been sweating over the fitness of star man Jamie Vardy.

Hitman Vardy picked up a problem following a collision with Watford shot-stopper Ben Foster during the first-half of the Foxes’ clash with the Hornets, before eventually being forced off with ten minutes remaining in his side’s defeat.

As such, the English international, who netted Leicester’s only goal at Vicarage Road, was immediately labelled as a doubt to feature versus Fulham this weekend.

But, in a boost for the 2016 Premier League champions, footage has emerged online this afternoon of Vardy taking part in full training with the rest of Brendan Rodgers’ squad:

Fulham boss Scott Parker, meanwhile, has no fresh concerns on the injury-front:
