New loan signing Ben Mee will be included in the Foxes squad.

The Manchester City defender joined the Foxes on New Year's Day and will remain at the Walkers Stadium until the end of the season.

His Eastlands team-mate Greg Cunningham is ruled out after suffering a broken leg during the victory against Hull.

Chris Kirkland missed the trip to Humberside with a back injury and the keeper's loan spell from Wigan has now ended.

Manager Sven-Goran Eriksson made three changes at the KC Stadium and is likely to tinker once again.

Fit-again defender Bruno Berner, midfielders Matt Oakley and Franck Moussa and forwards Steve Howard, Roman Bednar and Martyn Waghorn are all options for the Swede.

Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers looks set to be without Andrea Orlandi and Neil Taylor for the trip to face Leicester.

Winger Orlandi came off during the 1-0 win over Reading on Saturday with a slight thigh problem and defender Taylor suffered a twisted ankle.

Mark Gower and Albert Serran are likely to replace the pair in the starting line-up, but defender Alan Tate will miss out again through suspension as his team go in search of their third successive victory.

Rodgers said: "Perhaps people can see now why we have to rotate the team with so many games in such a short period of time."
