The striker is fit again after missing four matches with a calf problem so midfielder Andy King (hamstring) remains the only injury absentee for Nigel Pearson, who has been named Premier League manager of the month for April.
Central defender Marcin Wasilewski (foot) and strikers Jamie Vardy (foot) and Leonardo Ulloa (ankle) are nursing knocks but all three players will be fit to play on Saturday.
James Ward-Prowse, Morgan Schneiderlin and Dusan Tadic are amongst those unavailable for Southampton.
England Under-21s midfielder Ward-Prowse serves a one-match ban following last weekend’s red card at Sunderland, meaning he joins Schneiderlin (knee) and Tadic (groin) on the sidelines.
Jay Rodriguez has started training after a serious knee injury but is not yet ready for a first-team return, while Fraser Forster and Emmanuel Mayuka are also absent.
