Leicester manager Claude Puel has said striker Kelechi Iheanacho suffered a broken hand on international duty.
Iheanacho sustained the injury while he was away with Nigeria. He started his country’s victory in Poland last week but was absent from the squad for the 2-0 defeat to Serbia at Barnet on Tuesday.
Speaking ahead of Saturday’s trip to Brighton in the Premier League, Puel said: ‘Kelechi Iheanacho has a broken hand. We will see if he can play with this injury.
‘I think he fell but it’s not a bad injury. We will see if it will prevent him playing in this game or not.’
