Leicester City coach Brendan Rodgers has confirmed Daniel Amartey will sit out of action for a 'number of weeks' due to hamstring injury.
The defender picked up the injury prior to the international break in the Premier League match against West Ham.
"Obviously, Daniel Amartey is out with his hamstring for a number of weeks, so the international break hasn’t been too kind for us," Rodgers said in his team news on Friday ahead of Sunday's league tie against Aston Villa, his club's official website reports.
The injury is blow to Amartey's confidence having returned to the starting line up of the Foxes this season. An ankle injury he sustained in 2018 kept him out of action until September this year.
Amartey made his first Premier League appearance in 23 months against Manchester City and gave an impressive account of himself.
The game against West Ham was his third straight appearance this term.
