Leicester City defender Wesley Fofana is "feeling good" after recovering from injury and is hoping to excel in the Premier League this season.

The Foxes are 7/10 to start their campaign with a win over visitors Wolves, who are 4/1 to prevail with the draw 11/4 on Saturday August 14th.

Fofana joined the Midlands outfit from Saint-Etienne for a reported £36.5million back in October 2020, penning a five-year contract with the club.

And in his maiden campaign the Frenchman made 38 appearances across all competitions for City, who won the FA Cup for the first time in their history.

It's gone well and I hope to do even better next season.

Fofana picked up a knock for on the final day of last season and has been working on his fitness over the summer months but the France Under-21 talent has now confirmed he has recovered from the injury.

And the 20-year-old hopes he can continue to perform for Brendan Rodgers's side, who will be playing in the Europa League this season following their fifth-placed finish in the Premier League last term.

Speaking to LCFC TV, he said: "I'm feeling good - I finished last season with an injury, but now I've recovered.

"I worked hard with the physios over the break to get better and now I'm back training with the group, I feel good.

"I think I adapted quite quickly as my game suits the way football is played in England. My team-mates and the club have also helped to settle me in. It's gone well and I hope to do even better next season."
