LEICESTER’S PROLIFIC STRIKER Jamie Vardy will undergo minor groin surgery this week as the Foxes seek to limit the impact of a necessary absence.

BBC Radio Leicester reported that the Premier League’s joint-top goalscorer will go under the knife for an elective procedure and will miss up to two weeks.

The timing of the procedure is crucial as the news comes a week out from Leicester’s FA Cup third round trip to face Tottenham. England’s second-place club will hope that the 28-year-old misses minimal league games and the reported two-week lay-off could have him back in time for the trip to face Aston Villa on 16 January after clashes with Spurs in two competitions.
