On-loan Burton Albion defender Tom Parkes will undergo surgery on his fractured ankle on Friday.
The 19-year-old, on loan from Leicester, is expected to be out for around three months after suffering the injury during Albion's home draw against Staffordshire rivals Port Vale on Tuesday night.
Parkes' loan spell at the Pirelli Stadium was set to run until January but he will now remain at Leicester for his rehabilitation.
