​Leicester forward Vardy recovers in time for AEK Athens

Leicester City are boosted by the news that star striker Jamie Vardy is fit for their Europa League clash against AEK Athens.

The Premier League side have a group stage game they will want to win.

Vardy is an integral part of the team, but could only come off the bench at the weekend against Arsenal.

He scored the winner in that game, and manager Brendan Rodgers will be happy to count on him against AEK.

According to BBC Sport, Vardy should start the contest.

Ricardo Pereira, Wilfred Ndidi and Nampalys Mendy will miss the game.
