The England striker joined in with the Foxes squad on Tuesday ahead of Wednesday's Barclays Premier League trip to Tottenham.

Vardy missed Sunday's 2-2 FA Cup draw at White Hart Lane as he was recovering from a minor groin operation earlier this month.

He had done some light training away from the squad on Monday but has now rejoined the group and the Foxes expect to have him available to face Spurs.

Claudio Ranieri had planned to assess his 15-goal top scorer on Tuesday and believed Vardy, who has not netted in his last four games, would be ready.

He said on Monday: "Jamie had a problem for a month, more or less, and he continued to play. Now without the problem he is much better. I'll see if he starts from the beginning or if he is ready to come with me on the bench. Every time he wants to play, I know him."

The Foxes, second in the table and two points behind leaders Arsenal, are four points ahead of Tottenham but have not won in their last four games in all competitions.
