Daniel Amartey Set To Make Injury Return For Leicester U23 Against Aston Villa

Ghana defender Daniel Amartey is set to make an injury return for Leicester City U23 side in the semifinal against Aston Villa at the King Power Stadium.

The 23-year-old has been on the treatment table since sustaining an injury in the Foxes 1-1 stalemate with AFC Bournemouth in the English Premier League last month.

The former FC Copenhagen right back consequently missed six games, and is set to make a return to the green turf in the side’s U23 match against Aston Villa on Friday.

“Kasper [Schmeichel] is still injured like [Shinji] Okazaki , they are both not available,” Puel said in his club’s fitness update on Thursday.

“Some players like Amartey will come back with the Under-23s and we will see if he can come back into training.”

Amartey has made just eight league appearances, involving six starts, so far.
