The striker was injured in last month's 1-1 draw at Huddersfield but played in the Foxes' next two games with the help of an injection.

"Jamie had injections right after the Bournemouth game and he has fully recovered now", said Shakespeare.

"He was given a bit of time away because he wasn't allowed to do anything, but he has trained fully this week and looked sharp". There's no ill effects'.

The 30-year-old has been Leicester's top scorer in the past two seasons and is already in the goals this term despite the club's slow start to the campaign.

The Foxes have only won one of their opening seven Premier League games to date this term, although they have faced hard fixtures against the likes of Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea. We'll focus on West Brom, ' Shakespeare added.

"It is always a odd week worldwide week but playing Monday has helped us this time in terms of getting everyone back and getting a clean bill of health", Shakespeare told club website.

Shakespeare said Wilfred Ndidi was fit after he appeared to injure his hamstring on global duty with Nigeria while Ben Chilwell is also in contention after missing England under 21 duty with a knock.

"There was a scare about Wilfred Ndidi but it was only cramp". He's fine so there's no problems there'.

Manager Craig Shakespeare said: 'Obviously we are disappointed with the decision by Federation Internationale de Football Association and the other processes are in the hands of the club.

'But he is training with us and we try to keep his spirits up'.
