Leicester City manager Claude Puel has confirmed that Matty James will miss the rest of the season after having surgery on his Achilles tendon.
James has not featured since the 1-1 draw with Bournemouth in early March and will play no further part this term. The news marks another setback for the 26-year-old, whose last few seasons have been slighted by injury, and leaves Puel with limited option in central midfield for this weekend's home clash with Newcastle. The Foxes will be without the suspended Wilfred Ndidi as well as Daniel Amartey, who is set to return to training next week, meaning Adrian Silva will likely play alongside Vicente Iborra. Speaking to the media on Thursday, Puel said: "We have three solutions with [Vicente] Iborra, [Adrien] Silva and [Hamza] Choudhury also available so we will see for Saturday our midfield."
