​Mahrez absent from Leicester training after failed Man City switch

Riyad Mahrez failed to report for Leicester City training again on Thursday, a day after a move to Manchester City failed to materialise, Sky Sports reports.

The forward was the subject of multiple offers from the Premier League leaders, with the last of those understood to be a player-plus-cash offer worth an estimated £65m.

The Algeria international is understood to have told Leicester his emotional state is not strong enough to play football at the moment.
