Jamie Vardy set to be fit for PSV clash

Leicester City have a boost in their squad with news that striker Jamie Vardy and Jonny Evans might return to action for their European quarter-final against PSV Eindhoven.

Both players have had hamstring trouble with Vardy making only two appearances this year while Evans has not played since December 12.

Defender Evans is expected to resume full training during the international break while Vardy is also making good progress ahead of the first leg of the club's Europa Conference League clash with the Dutch giants on April 7.

Speaking to the press on Friday, manager Brendan Rodgers said: "Jonny is working on the training field and Jamie is not too far away.

"Hopefully after the international break we get a few players back and when the competition returns we can be a lot stronger."

Rodgers however was not clear if Wesley Fofana, who marked his first competitive appearance for 10 months with the decisive goal at Rennes on Thursday, will play against the Bees.

There is a feeling that the player should be integrated back to action slowly after breaking his leg and damaging ankle ligaments in a pre-season friendly against Villarreal.
