Mahrez Still Absent From Leicester Training

Riyad Mahrez remained away from the Leicester fold as Claude Puel's squad resumed training on Tuesday, according to reports.
The club are mediating with Mahrez and his agents in an effort to bring the Algerian back into contention for Puel.

But according to The Daily Mirror, Mahrez was not present at Leicester's Belvoir Drive complex, a week after first going AWOL amid Manchester City's late bid.

There are now doubts over whether the 26-year-old forward will even feature in Leicester's next game, which comes against Pep Guardiola's side at the Etihad on Saturday.

The former PFA Player of the Year has not reported for duty at Leicester since last Tuesday but club officials are taking a delicate approach and it is believed he might have been granted time away since deadline day.

Mahrez is said to have a fragile mental state following the collapse of his dream move and the PFA have offered assistance in the matter.
