Leicester City star Youri Tielemans has been ruled out of action for 2-3 weeks with a calf/ankle injury, according to The Atheltic journalist Charlotte Harpur. 

The 24-year-old limped up during the Foxes’ 1 – 1 draw with Leeds United on Sunday.

After the match, the club boss Brendan Rodgers said that the issue was a “little bit of a worry”. However, a calf scan showed that the injury is more serious than expected.
