The Northern Ireland defender missed last weekend’s defeat by Southampton at King Power Stadium with a broken little toe, but has made a speedy recovery at Belvoir Drive.

City head to Molineux Stadium for a Premier League encounter with Nuno Espírito Santo’s side in Saturday's early kick-off.

“Evans can come back in the squad, it was not a serious injury,” Puel said on Thursday, during his weekly pre-match press conference on Filbert Way.

The Foxes continued their preparations for Saturday's trip to Wolves with another training session at Belvoir Drive on Thursday.

“He will be in the squad on Saturday. Of course, I am happy when a player can come back in the squad.”

Aside from Daniel Amartey, who is still recovering from an ankle injury sustained in October's 1-1 draw with West Ham United, Puel says City have no other injury concerns.
