Turkish defender Caglar Soyuncu could miss playing time for up to three months over abductor problem, Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers said.

“Soyuncu is more serious in terms of the muscle is right off the bone, so he could be up to three months, which is an absolute shame for him,” Rodgers said in a post-game interview after the Premier League clash between Leicester City and Aston Villa on Sunday.

“He did it the day before training with the Turkish national team. So, he’ll be a big miss, and he adds to the other boys that are out,” he said.

Soyuncu, 24, suffered an injury when he was on international duty for the Turkish national team.
