Loan signing Aman Verma's time at Kidderminster Harriers looks to be over with the injured midfielder back at Leicester and unable to play for the forseeable future.

The 22-year-old broke a bone in his hand making his debut at Newport County two weeks ago and, after Leicester sent him to a specialist, has been put in a hard cast which will not allow him to play.

Verma is looking at anywhere up to two further weeks out, which would bring him to the end of his one-month loan at Aggborough.

Negotiations are ongoing with his parent club, who are receiving part of his wages from Harriers as a clause of the deal, to terminate his loan and Leicester have expressed a wish for him to continue his rehabilitation with them.

Harriers assistant manager Gary Whild was hopeful today that an agreement could be reached.

He said: "I have spoken to Leicester and they understand it's just one of those things. For the meantime they would rather have him with them, where they can monitor him and get the lad right again.

"For the time being, they are keeping him back there."

Harriers have been boosted by the return of player-coach John Finnigan to light training, who Verma was supposed to be covering for when the midfielder suffered a recurrence of what has been a long-standing groin injury.

But Saturday's home game with Hayes & Yeading will come too soon and management are taking no chances with the 34-year-old.

Whild said: "John is well down the road with his rehab, he's back in light training and waiting for the OK to step it up a bit now. Everything has gone well and over the next couple of weeks things should become a lot brighter for him.

"Fingers crossed, he's on the road to recovery and hopefully that will be the end of it."
