Vardy ‘not close’ to Leicester comeback

Jamie Vardy remains sidelined for Leicester City's Europa Conference League quarter-final first leg against PSV Eindhoven.

The striker has been out since early March with a knee injury and played just 79 minutes in this calendar year.

Danny Ward, Ryan Bertrand and Wilfred Ndidi are also out with knee issues.

Luke Thomas is available after recovering from a hamstring injury, having missed his side's Premier League draw at Manchester United on Saturday.

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers admitted Vardy, 35, does not look "close to being back.

It is hard to put a timeline on it," he added. He is still feeling pain within the knee.

He can run and he is outside, but when he is striking the ball there is an issue, so we will have to get to the bottom of that.

I will have to speak to the medical team to see where that is at, but it doesn't sound as if he is too close to being back.
