Four Leicester City stars have been pictured back in training as the club edges closer to a full complement of players.
Wilfred Ndidi, Ayoze Perez, James Maddison, and Christian Fuchs were all on the pitch at Belvoir Drive on Thursday as the squad continued their preparations for this Saturday’s preseason game against Blackburn, and the Premier League opener at West Brom that follows eight days later.

Ndidi and Perez did not feature in either of City’s first two behind-closed-doors friendlies against Championship sides Birmingham and Sheffield Wednesday but are now back in action.
Maddison and Fuchs’ returns represent good news on the injury front.
Attacking midfielder Maddison underwent minor hip surgery in July, and was expected to be fit for the start of pre-season training. Last week, however, he was in the gym with Ricardo Pereira, rather than training with his team-mates. Now, he looks to be back in full training.
