Leicester midfielder Youri Tielemans has withdrawn from the Belgium national team because of the injury he picked up against Leeds United at the weekend.

Tielemans was taken off in the late stages of Sunday’s 1-1 draw following a collision with goalkeeper Illan Meslier.

According to HLN, initial scans have identified damage to Tielemans’ ankle and calf, and the early estimate is that the midfielder will miss between two and three weeks while he recovers.

Instead of reporting for international duty, Tielemans has remained with Leicester, where he will undergo further tests to determine just how long he will remain on the sidelines.

He will miss Belgium’s upcoming meetings with Estonia and Wales, but Leicester will also be sweating over his fitness as they will welcome Chelsea to the King Power Stadium on November 20.
