FootballSportRiyad Mahrez AWOL for FOURTH day after Leicester City – Manchester City transfer fell through Ben Gelblum

"I hope for Riyad that he can clear his head and come back with us because he's a big player".

The Algerian winger failed to turn up to Leicester City training on Friday, the fourth straight day that he's been absent.

It was gathered that Mahrez has been left "depressed" by Leicester's decision not to accept City's final offer for him, with the Foxes valuing the Algeria worldwide closer to £95m.

This is Mahrez's reaction to his proposed move to Manchester City falling through. But Mahrez has seen Leicester sell N'Golo Kane and Danny Drinkwater to a Champions League club and apparently he believes Leicester promised him he could leave the club if they received a suitable offer for him.

Manchester City winger Patrick Roberts was reportedly the mystery player offered to Leicester in the transfer deadline drama that saw the Premier League leaders make a late effort to prise 2015/16 PFA Players' Player of the Year Riyad Mahrez away from the Foxes. All I can say about the situation is that this is the best decision for Leicester, in the best interests of Leicester.

"I think the players know it will be hard sometimes for Riyad and we have a fantastic group, squad, all the players have a fantastic relationship and understanding between themselves".

'Riyad will not be available for this game, ' said Puel at his Friday press conference.

'It's a tough situation for us and we need manage it but after this transfer window it is important to move on and keep our focus on the game. We need to stay united after all this.

Mahrez was a key cog in the Leicester machine as the "Fearless Foxes" stormed to the 2015-16 Premier League title.

City tabled multipled unsuccessful bids for the 26-year-old this week as Pep Guardiola sought to strengthen his squad after the serious injury suffered by Leroy Sane at the weekend. They wait for him to be back in the squad because he is a valuable player.

Mahrez has been missing for four days, including Wednesday night's 2-1 defeat at Everton with sources close to him claiming he's 'depressed'.
