Chris Sutton mocks 'big baby&apos Riyad Mahrez

A bid for Mahrez amounting to £60m from Manchester City on transfer deadline day was rejected by Leicester, who had received a transfer request from the Algerian. "We offered our services last week to the club but I've not heard anything back".

Claude Puel has pleaded with Riyad Mahrez to come back to Leicester but failed to say when that might be.

"It's important this remains inside the club and private, not in the public".

Riyad Mahrez has seriously tarnished his reputation in the eyes of football fans in recent weeks. He loves his relationship with his friends and team-mates.

The ex-Leicester midfielder, who played for the Foxes in 2001, did not hold back on his assessment of the 26-year-old.

The former basketball player made it look easy, as he became the first quarterback to pull in a reception in the Super Bowl . New England has also gotten a strong season from receiver Brandin Cook after acquiring him from New Orleans this offseason.

City's offer of £50m plus a player fell short of Leicester's valuation but Mahrez has since refused to turn up to training and has not been involved in matches. "Together, to look forward and continue the hard work on the pitch".

Leicester are determined to play the situation carefully, declining to even confirm or deny whether Mahrez has been given permission to be absent, but it is understood there is growing exasperation behind the scenes over the situation.

Leicester, however, are hoping to resolve the issue internally and are prepared to give the Algeria global time to reintegrate back into the squad.

The 26-year-old now earns £100,000-a-week and PFA chief executive Gordon Taylor has warned him his behaviour will lead to consequences.

According to The Times' Gary Jacob, Mahrez wants a "guarantee" he will be allowed to leave Leicester in the summer before he ends his exile, although another solution could be to agree on a release clause.
