​Leicester manager Puel: I'm planning without Mahrez

Claude Puel is organising his Leicester City team without Riyad Mahrez.

The Algerian hasn't trained with his teammates since a deadline day move to Manchester City fell through.

Puel has since been inundated with questions about Mahrez's return date, but the Frenchman has insisted he's making plans that don't include his star player.

"My only focus in this moment is to look forward to have some good occupation and feeling about available players," he said.

"For this moment Riyad is not available and my priority is the other players."
