Super Falcons defender, Ashleigh Plumptre hopes to return to full action early next year.
The centre-back sustained a hamstring injury in Leicester City’s 8-0 defeat to Chelsea last weekend.
Plumptre is now expected to be sidelined for the remainder of this year.
The 23-year-old took to social media to thank her fans for their support, stating that she is fully focused on returning to the field of play.
Plumptre has made 14 league appearances for the Foxes this season.
Willie Kirk’s side is yet to record a win in the Women’s Super League this term.
