Leicester will be without Kelechi Iheanacho for their Europa League clash with Legia Warsaw on Thursday after the Nigeria international forward was denied entry into Poland.

The Foxes flew out for their latest continental fixture on Wednesday evening, but are now a man down after issues at passport control.

Iheanacho has been forced to head back to the UK and will be left as a spectator when Brendan Rodgers’ side take to the field.

Problems with the 24-year-old’s documentation have led to an embarrassing mix up for the Foxes, who will be without their top scorer from last season when facing Legia.

Airport officials are said to have noticed a difference between Iheanacho’s official paperwork and the visa he required in order to enter an EU country.
