Leicester midfielder James insists Mahrez drama 'put to bed'

Leicester City midfielder Matty James is confident Riyad Mahrez's stoppage-time equaliser last weekend against Bournemouth ended the deadline day transfer saga.

The Algerian scored a free-kick seven minutes into added time to secure a 1-1 draw for the Foxes.

It was his first goal since spending ten days in exile after his deadline day move to Manchester City fell through.

"I think that goal puts it to bed," he said. "We as players put it to bed straight away.

"It is what it is. He is Riyad Mahrez and he plays for Leicester City. That is all it is for us now. We will try to get the best out of him for the rest of the season."
