Craig Shakespeare has revealed that Andy trained on Friday morning as Leicester City begin to King Power Stadium on Sunday. 

King, 28, has been suffering from a hamstring injury since being substituted in the 68th minute at Manchester City earlier this month. Shakespeare, however, says the Academy graduate is on the road to recovery and could feature on Filbert Way this weekend (3pm kick-off). 

During his pre-match press conference on Friday afternoon, Shakespeare also provided an update on the players who appeared during the 6-1 reverse to Tottenham Hotspur the evening before. 

The City boss expects all those who played against Spurs to be fit to play on the final day of the 2016/17 season. Leicester are yet to defeat the Cherries since the south coast club's promotion two years ago but they can climb above them into the top half with three points on Sunday. 

“It was more of a recovery day,” Shakespeare said. “The lads who didn't play went out and trained fairly well. We’ll assess it now. I’m not expecting any more injuries from what we’ve had. Andy King trained today so that’s a plus side for us. 

"We may have another man but I’m expecting everyone who played the other night to be fit to play.”
