Leicester’s January signing Molla Wague has been ruled out for the rest of the season.
The defender, who joined on loan from Udinese on Deadline Day, dislocated his shoulder on his debut against Millwall.
“He definitely can’t play,” Shakespeare told the Leicester Mercury. “He has had the operation in Italy and we are due to see him again. Our best wishes are with him.
“It was a real unfortunate incident, a freak incident really. It is a shame for the boy.
“There is not a lot we can do about it but he will be back and in and around the training ground but he won’t be playing. We will re-evaluate it in the summer.”
Molla Wague, who can also play at right-back, started his career at French club Caen, where he made 56 appearances before joining La Liga side Granada in the summer of 2014.
