Daniel Amartey to play for Leicester City U-23s as he returns from injury

Leicester City defender Daniel Amartey will feature for the club’s Under-23 side on Friday as he continues to regain full match fitness following his return from injury.

The Ghana international has been out of first-team football for six weeks, after injuring his hamstring earlier this year in an English Premier League game against Bournemouth.

The 23-year-old returned to first-team training last week but is still far off full match sharpness, hence the decision by club manager Claude Puel to draft him into the Under-23 setup.

He is expected to start for the side when they take on the Aston Villa U-23s on Friday night.

Amartey has made eight appearances so far this season for the foxes.
