Leicester City manager Dean Smith says Kelechi Iheanacho will have a scan to find out the extent of the injury he suffered against Leeds United on Wednesday.
The Forward injured his groin during the second half of the 1-1 at the Elland Road.
Iheanacho suffered the injury in the build-up to Jamie Vardy’s equalizer, holding his groin as he ran through a challenge but still managing to play a pass forward to James Maddison as he limped on.
“He’s pulled up with his groin. Well, I say pulled up, he kept going and played it through to Madders. It didn’t look great and we’ll have a scan.”
The Manager will be hoping the injury isn’t serious, so he can have the Nigerian available for the concluding part of the season.
Iheanacho has been one of the most improved player in the squad since Dean Smith replaced Brendan Rodgers as Leicester boss.
The Nigerian scored in each of the new manager’s first two games in charge against Manchester City and Wolves.
Speaking earlier in the week, Smith explained the importance of the former Manchester City forward to his squad.
“He really enjoys football and he cares. You could see that from his body language right from the first moment. He’s another robust character. What I’ve seen I’ve liked so far.”
