Date published: Monday 4th January 2016 9:48

Jamie Vardy is set for up to a fortnight out through injury, according to reports.

BBC Radio Leicester said on Sunday that the 28-year-old – one of the stars of the season – is to have minor groin surgery and will sit out for one to two weeks.

There has been no comment from Leicester, who need¬†Vardy‘s goals to maintain their title challenge.

The England international has netted 15 Premier League goals this season, including a record run of scoring in 11 consecutive games, although he has just one in his last six.

Leicester’s form has dipped slightly too, failing to score in a run of three games that has yielded two points.

They host Tottenham in the FA Cup next weekend.
