Riyad Mahrez to miss Swansea match and faces fine

The striker was flying high in training as he and the rest of the squad prepared for Swansea

"He would have made [Manchester] City better and stronger", Murphy said, "I think with the injuries they've got he'd have gone straight in [to the team]". 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".

Riyad Mahrez will not play in Leicester's Premier League match against Swansea today after missing training for a fourth consecutive day.

Mahrez is bitterly upset that he missed out on a move to City after Leicester rejected an offer worth around £65 million (S$121.5 million) for him and demanded a fee in the region of £80 million.

"We need to stay united after all this, it is a situation we need to manage but other things will stay inside the club".

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. It is important now to move on and to keep our focus on the pitch.

"After some time, he will come back with us", the Frenchman said.

"He's outgrown Leicester, he's too good for Leicester", Murphy concluded, adding that he believed Mahrez is a Champions League player. "Of course, no problem when he will come back with us, with a good feeling for all the people".

Puel insists there is a way back for the Algeria worldwide, who played a starring role in Leicester's shock Premier League title triumph two years ago. They wait for him to be back in the squad because he is a valuable player.

'I understand his disappointment.

Mahrez's continued absence means Puel will have an unchanged squad against Swansea.
