Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has revealed Jamie Vardy is set to undergo surgery on his persistent hip problem and will be on the sidelines 'for a few weeks'.
Vardy has missed a number of matches after he underwent a minor hernia operation and is expected to be on the sidelines for a few weeks after surgery.
"Jamie Vardy will be out for a few weeks. As you know, we've been managing him over this last number of months, and he's been absolutely fantastic," the Leicester boss revealed.
"We have a window now that allows him to have a minor operation on his hernia and then he'll be back within a few weeks. He'll be out for that period."
"It's one that doesn't keep him out for too long, but it's just a repair in and round that hernia area. It's one we feel he can't really put it off much longer. We were hoping to do it a few weeks back, but this is a window where we can get it done and that will obviously leave him with a good part of the season where he can be really influential for us."
The England international has netted 11 goals for the Foxes this season in the Premier League.
