But an injury to loan signing Greg Cunningham against Hull City on New Year's Day has seen Berner recalled.
The Swiss, 33, has impressed since coming on as a substitute against the Tigers, playing every game and also scored in the win over Swansea City.
Berner was offered a new contract by Eriksson before he returned to the starting line-up but
was reluctant to sign if he was not a regular starter.
But he has retained his place despite the Foxes also signing
versatile Manchester City defender Ben Mee on loan.
