Mahrez Released From Algeria Squad to Seal Move From Leicester

Riyad Mahrez has been released by the Algerian national team so he can complete his move away from Leicester City.
The winger has been linked with a move away from the King Power Stadium all summer, with Monaco and Roma having previously shown an interest.

He has since been linked with Manchester United and Barcelona, and he looks set to depart the Foxes before the window closes.

A statement on www.faf.dz read: "Leicester City's Algerian international Riyad Mahrez, who is currently with the national team in Sidi Moussa to prepare for the double confrontation against Zambia for the 2018 World Cup qualifiers, was authorised by the national coach Lucas Alcaraz and the Algerian Football Federation to make an express trip to Europe to formalise on Thursday his transfer to his new club.
"The national team will fly without him on Thursday morning to Lusaka to face Zambia on Saturday."
Mahrez has spent the past week preparing for his country's World Cup qualifying match against Zambia on Saturday, but will now leave the camp so as to complete a move that could be worth in the region of £46m.
