Leicester City's Riyad Mahrez to miss Manchester City game

Leicester City predicted line-up vs Manchester City

Riyad Mahrez's self-imposed exile from Leicester has been extended as the fallout from his failed deadline-day move to Manchester City rumbles on.

Riyad Mahrez must start to respect Leicester City and his team-mates amid his ongoing transfer issues with the club, says Dennis Wise.

Mahrez is unhappy that Leicester were determined to secure such a huge profit on a player they bought for a reported £350,000 from French second-division side Le Havre in 2014 and who played a pivotal role in the club's rise from the Championship to Premier League champions.

'I hope Riyad can get his head right and to come back with us and to hard work.

Leicester City forward Fousseni Diabate has the right attributes to handle the rigours of the Premier League and has made a good early impression, manager Claude Puel said.

"Riyad is a magnificent player. He needs to come back and to play, to touch the ball".

Roberts was also on David Moyes' radar this January but Leicester moved first to try to get him as part of the Mahrez package.

U.S. airstrike repels attack by Syrian regime-backed troops
It's not the first time USA -led forces in the country primarily to hunt ISIS have targeted pro-Assad forces in self-defense. Last year, US aircraft shot down a Syrian jet after pro-government forces attacked USA allied units in northern Syria.

"I think it is important to look forward", Frenchman Puel said.

"It's important this remains inside the club and private, not in the public".

In lieu of this escalating situation, the PFA have apparently offered to mediate over the proceedings until a solution can be reached between Leicester and the player.

The Foxes are prepared to take their time reintegrating the "depressed" Algerian back into the team.

Mahrez has not trained or played for the Foxes since - and, according to reports on Wednesday, that will continue into this weekend's match (against Man City, coincidentally) at the very least.

The 26-year-old signed a new contract, which expires in 2020, after Leicester's Premier League title-winning campaign in 2016.
