Daniel Amartey out for a month with hamstring injury

Leicester City defender Daniel Amartey is set to spend a month on the sidelines after suffering a hamstring injury.

He picked up the injury in Premier League clash with Bournemouth, consequently leading to his substitution in the 20th minute.

After medical examination, it has emerged that the 23-year-old would have to spend some time in the treatment room, effectively confirming him out of imminent games against West Bromwich Albion, Arsenal, Chelsea and Brighton and Hove Albion this month.

“Amartey will be injured,” Puel told pressmen on Thursday.

“It is a hamstring injury. Other players, like Shinji, are available and fit to come back into the squad.

“[It will be] one month [for Amartey]. He can come back after this injury.

"There is an interesting competition in the squad and players show spirit to fight for their places.”

He has managed a total of eight league appearances this season.
