Jamie Vardy fit to return for Leicester at Chelsea after injury

Leicester striker Jamie Vardy will be fit to face Chelsea after recovering from a groin injury.

The England international missed Saturday's FA Cup draw at former club Fleetwood but will travel to Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Captain Wes Morgan and defender Danny Simpson remain out with a hamstring problems but Vicente Iborra (hamstring) Christian Fuchs (illness) are available for the Foxes.

Boss Claude Puel said: "He will be available for the game, there is no problem with Jamie. He can train well this week.

"I don't know how long Wes will stay outside the squad but I hope to have some good news and hope I can speak about the end of the injury.

"Simpson can run a little which is good news and we will see when he can come back into the team."

Meanwhile, Puel confirmed the Foxes are close to the signing of Fousseni Diabate from French Ligue 2 club Gazelec Ajaccio.

They have agreed a fee of around £2million for the 22-year-old, who can play either as a striker or a winger.

Puel said: "He is close to signing and it's a good opportunity for us. In the past Leicester haven't signed bad players from Ligue 2, like [Riyad] Mahrez.

"He has quality, pace, penetration and is good with ball at his feet. He can play as a winger wide right or left and striker also.

"He's an interesting player for the future and will be between the Under-23 and Premier League squad -- he has quality to play in Premier League. He's a young player but has all the attributes to become a good player."
