Mahrez To Join Man City Before Window Closes?

The Foxes star crashed down on the mat on the side of the training pitch at Belvoir Drive

The Algeria global did not show up for training on Friday after he failed to secure a move to Manchester City on transfer deadline day.

Puel has refused to confirm when the Algeria winger is expected back to training - and the club are considering fining him for effectively going on strike.

Leicester stood tall and rejected advances from the Premier League leaders totalling around £65million. Sky claims Mahrez is "depressed" about Leicester's decision not to accept City's final bid, and has informed his club that "he is not strong enough to play football at the moment".

Riyad Mahrez is hoping to become a Manchester City player before the 11pm deadline.

The 26 year old winger handed his club a transfer request earlier in the week. "It's of course always a hard situation and we will have to manage this situation with Riyad", Puel said.

Riyad Mahrez will not play in Leicester's Premier League match against Swansea today after missing training for a fourth consecutive day. "He is our friend and I think all the staff and all the players will help him to come back with a good mentality and a positive attitude and to enjoy his football with his team-mates".

'He's seen other star players being allowed to fly the nest for good money - so why are Leicester demanding a king's ransom for Mahrez?

'I understand his disappointment.

Manchester City withdrew their interest after refusing to meet Leicester's asking price, leaving the Algeria worldwide facing an uncertain future at the King Power stadium.

But according to The Sun, the Foxes are privately furious with their angst-ridden Algerian star and "have taken legal advice on how they now try and reintegrate their £95million-rated asset back into their squad".
