They will also return for Leicester City”s FA Cup semi-final against Southampton next Sunday. 

The club released a statement concerning this after their 3-2 defeat to West Ham United on Sunday.

Leicester’s statement reads:

“The club has made its expectations around adherence to COVID-19 protocols abundantly clear to all its personnel. 
“It is extremely disappointing, therefore, to learn of a breach that had the potential to undermine the efforts of club staff to protect the environments in which our teams train and play. 

“Appropriate measures have been taken to prevent our team bubbles being compromised. 
“We wholly expect our people to behave in a way that reflects the national effort and the sacrifices made by our communities to control the spread of the virus. 

“Those involved have apologised for their poor judgement. Our response to the matter will be concluded internally.”
