The Nigeria international is still out of action owing to a knee injury and is expected to be out of the showdown against the Citizens
And ahead of Saturday’s English top-flight cracker at King Power Stadium, manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed the ex-Genk man will not be rushed into action.
“Wilf won’t be available for the weekend,” Rodgers told the club website.
“He’s still in a process to try and get fit so we’ll see how he is next week. I’m not sure.
“He’s doing work inside, but you then have to progress that to outside and then when he can join the team. It’s another intensity to join the team and then to play.
“We just want to make sure he’s right because he’s such an important player for us. It’s about the long term too. There’s no timeline on it. We’ll see how he progresses.”
