Leicester City

defender Wesley Fofana suffered a fibula fracture in the pre-season tour.

The French defender suffered the injury during the second half of the friendly match against Villarreal, the champions of the Europa League, .

Villarreal striker Nino made a violent tackle on his leg, after which the team's paramedics and physiotherapist rushed into the pitch. The 20-year-old defender was treated on the pitch for a long time when he was eventually forced to leave in front of 17,000 fans at King Power Stadium.

He wrote on his Instagram:

"Hello guys, many thanks for all your messages. It is a bad day today but I am in a tremendous club with a wonderful medical team,

"I will give you news as soon as I have a final diagnosis but we already know that I have a fibula fracture. I will come soon and stronger: do not worry."

He joined Leicester City in October for £30 million, playing 38 games for Brendan Rodgers' side. Now, with the injury he suffered, it remains to be seen how long he will miss next season.
