Amartey had been a key man for the Foxes since the start of the season, and had appeared in nine of ten of Leicester’s Premier League fixtures.

However, the defender will miss the remainder of the season, and will be a big miss for the Foxes.

The defender also revealed he only learned of the death of Leicester City chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha after his successful surgery on his ankle.

The chairman passed away after his helicopter crashed after the game against West Ham.
