- Leicester City manager Claude Puel provides his weekly first team fitness update
- Vicente Iborra will be available for selection in Saturday's match against Watford (3pm GMT kick-off)
- Harry Maguire and Rachid Ghezzal will miss the visit of Javi Gracia's men to King Power Stadium
- Puel also discusses Matty James' fitness following an appearance for City's Under-23s

Speaking to the national media on Friday, Foxes boss Claude Puel confirmed the Spaniard has recovered from an injury which was sustained during a 1-1 draw at Brighton & Hove Albion.

However, Saturday’s Premier League visit of Watford to Filbert Way is likely to be too soon for Harry Maguire (knee) and Rachid Ghezzal (leg) to return to the starting line-up.

Meanwhile, Iborra's midfield colleague, Matty James (Achilles), completed 90 minutes for the Club's Development Squad on Thursday - and City's manager is delighted with his progress. 

“Vicente can come back with us,” Puel confirmed. “Harry made some warm-ups and touches with the ball this morning. I hope he can come back into training next week.

“Ghezzal did a run this morning and perhaps in the middle of next week, he can come back. Matty played a full game with the Under-23s yesterday.

“Of course he needs time to come back and it was amazing to see him come back on the pitch.”
