Knockaert to miss Leicester trip
Anthony Knockaert will miss Leicester's Capital One Cup trip to Torquay.
Knockaert reported for international duty with France's Under-21 squad over the weekend and will attend training camp in Clairefontaine until Wednesday, rejoining his Foxes team-mates the following day ahead of Saturday's npower Championship opener against Peterborough. Fellow new arrivals Ritchie de Laet, Matty James, Marko Futacs, Zak Whitbread and Jamie Vardy are all in contention, however. City boss Nigel Pearson said: "Jamie's back was a little bit tight, but he's a player that plays a lot of games so I'm not too worried about that. "The players have all worked exceptionally hard in pre-season and, for the most part, they've put themselves into a situation where it's going to be a tough choice. "But because the squad is not exceptionally big this year, all the players are going to be required and everyone will play a significant part this season."
