Riyad Mahrez goes awol after Man City transfer flops

  • Higginbotham was speaking on Sky Sports News' Premier League Daily

From Arsenal's busy window to the Riyad Mahrez saga, the Exploding Heads run through all the major storylines from the January transfer window.

The Algeria global did not turn up to training on Thursday and Friday, after his proposed move to Manchester City did not materialise on Deadline Day.

Leicester City boss Claude Puel has revealed that the Foxes are continuing to assess the ongoing situation involving Riyad Mahrez.

The 26-year-old witnessed another nightmare as his attempt to join Manchester City fell aside after Leicester failed to agree on a fee for the forward with the Etihad Stadium outfit. 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. It is the best decision for the squad. 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".

Henry insisted the policy had "nothing against the African race at all". It is later claimed he said: "Sometimes they can have a bad attitude".

The 26-year-old has not trained for Claude Puel's side since seeing his hopes of a dream move dashed. The business [side] of the transfer window is hard for us to manage but I think it is time now to move on and keep our focus. "We will deal with his side and the club, not in public". It is important now to move on and to keep our focus on the pitch.

Mahrez is unhappy to have missed out on a move to Pep Guardiola's side, and reportedly isn't taking it well.

And it quickly emerged that they wanted a player to be thrown into the bargain to make up part of that valuation.

Almost two years have passed since Mahrez helped the Foxes win the Premier League title and so you can understand why he's so upset.

"It is time to talk to Riyad, we have a good relationship and we need to manage the situation", said Puel.

"I hope he can come back quickly with us, and with a smile and happy to play with us".

The Algeria global handed in a transfer request in a bid to force through a transfer, sources said, and he was left out of the squad for Wednesday's defeat at Everton.
