Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare has confirmed that Nampalys Mendy will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing surgery on his ankle.
Mendy has not played since the 1-0 defeat to Millwall in the the 5th round of the FA Cup in mid-February and will now miss the rest of the term after having an ankle operation to resolve his long-term ankle problem. The French defensive midfielder, a £13million signing from Nice last summer, was limited to just eight appearances in all competitions after injuring his ankle on his Premier League debut against Arsenal back in September. The prolonged absence of Mendy should see Wilfried Ndidi hold a firm place in the starting XI for the rest of the campaign, with Andy King also seeing an increase in minutes. "Unfortunately Papy Mendy had to have an ankle operation in France," Shakespeare said on Monday. "He’s going to be back with us doing his rehab. He had a floating bone in there that needed looking after and he’s out now until the end of the season." Mon, Apr 24, 2017 03:20:00 PM
