Jamie Vardy set to undergo minor operation, confirms Brendan Rodgers”

Brendan Rodgers has confirmed the forward is now expected to miss a few weeks ahead of an operation with the club keen to ensure Vardy is fit and firing over the second half of the campaign.

Vardy has not scored in five games but the Foxes have still won three and drawn twice and Rodgers expects them to perform without the 13-goal man.

Rodgers mentioned Vardy's absence for a few weeks.

Manager Brendan Rodgers said: 'It's one that doesn't keep him out for too long but it's just a fix in and around that sort of hernia area. It's one that we feel we can't put off much longer.

Leicester City's English striker Jamie Vardy reacts after missing a chance during the English Premier League football match between Leicester City and Southampton at King Power Stadium in Leicester, central England on January 16, 2021. 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.

Leicester, who visit Brentford in the FA Cup fourth round on Sunday, play Everton, Leeds United, Fulham and Wolverhampton Wanderers in the league in the coming weeks before hosting champions Liverpool on Feb 13.

Rodgers had spoken earlier in the week of getting the best out of Vardy in the time he has remaining at the top as he has also been hindered by a recurring hip problem. There's no doubt that when you don't have one of the top strikers in the league available of course it's disappointing but we've always tried to rely on the collective'. He doesn't threaten the backline as quickly as Vardy, but he's a great finisher.
