Leicester City cancel Sunday's planned training session and will reportedly look to push back their meeting with Everton following Saturday's helicopter crash tragedy.

Leicester City will reportedly seek to postpone Tuesday's EFL Cup tie with Everton following the helicopter crash outside the King Power Stadium on Saturday evening.

Foxes owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha and at least four others are feared to have been on board the helicopter when it crashed in a car park shortly after taking off from inside the ground.

Leicester cancelled Sunday's planned training session and, according to the Daily Mail, the midweek cup match against Southampton will also be pushed back to a later date.

Instead, the club's players and staff have been told to stay home to come to terms with the tragedy, which has rocked not only the 2015-16 title winners but football as a whole.

Wales Online, meanwhile, indicates that next league opponents Cardiff will hold discussions with their Leicester counterparts to determine whether to postpone next weekend's game.

A statement on the occupants inside the helicopter at the time of the crash is expected on Sunday evening.
