The Nigerian has battled for regular minutes this season.
"When you're playing or challenging one of the best strikers in the league, it's difficult", Rodgers said in his pre-match press conference.
“Kel will come back into pre-season, gain more confidence and hopefully come out of that with a renewed motivation to show his qualities.
“I've been impressed with him. His appetite, his work, and then in games, where he has come on, he's impacted the game, he's done very well, and nearly did again."
“He knows he should score, in big games you don't get many chances. He's a fantastic young player and hopefully he can show that over his time at Leicester."
