COMMITTED! Mahrez signs new Leicester contract

Riyad Mahrez has signed a new contract with Premier League champions Leicester City.

The Algerian winger has committed his future to the Foxes until 2020 after being linked with a possible departure for much of the summer.

Mahrez, 25, had been a key target for Arsenal during the transfer market but has opted to tire himself down to the King Power Stadium for the next four years.

The 2015/16 PFA Player of the Year, with 17 goals and 11 assists, joins Wes Morgan, Jamie Vardy, Kasper Schmeichel and Andy King in signing new deals with the East Midlands club.

It is understood that there is no buy-out clause in Mahrez's contract which is expected to land him £25million over the four years, according to The Sun.
