- Brendan Rodgers has confirmed Caglar Soyuncu is to be out for three months
- The Turkish defender saw ‘muscle come off bone’ during international duty
- Leicester have already seen Wilfried Ndidi ruled out for a similar timeframe
Brendan Rodgers was left bemoaning another serious injury as the Leicester boss confirmed first choice centre back Caglar Soyuncu is set for three months on the sidelines.
Soyuncu, 24, played no part in Sunday’s dramatic 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa, where Ross Barkley netted a last-minute winner for Dean Smith’s visitors.
In defeat Rodgers confirmed Soyuncu, who suffered an abductor tear while on international duty with Turkey, has a ‘serious’ problem and is likely to play no part until 2021.
‘(Caglar) Soyuncu is more serious in terms of the muscle is right off the bone,’ Rodgers said.
‘So he could be out for three months, which is an absolute shame. He did it training with the Turkish national team.
‘He’ll be a big miss and adds to the other boys who are out.’
