Goalkeeper Chris Kirkland's loan spell at Leicester City could be cut short before he has even played a game.The Wigan Athletic star suffered a back spasm in training last week and has returned to the Latics for treatment. [LNB]And Foxes boss Sven-Goran Eriksson said the club are waiting to see if it is worth Kirkland resuming his loan stint. [LNB]"We have him until the start of January so we have five games to go. But I don't know - we will see when he can start training," Eriksson said. [LNB]"We don't know when he can start to train again; not even Wigan or the player himself know that. So that is the problem. [LNB]"We have to see how he feels day to day. I spoke to him on Friday and he feels much better but he is not ready. [LNB]"He will need at least one week's training before he can play again." [LNB]The 29-year-old was due to make his debut against Nottingham Forest last Monday. [LNB]Kirkland, who has one England cap, has been plagued by back problems during his career.
