GETTY Riyad Mahrez failed to force through a move to Manchester City on deadline day

Riyad Mahrez

Riyad Mahrez regrets his 10-day absence at Leicester City following a failed move to Manchester City but has nonetheless refused to rule out a move away from the King Power Stadium this summer.

"I was away from here because I needed some time to think", he said. At the moment I'm a Leicester player and I am good here.

Leicester have failed to win any of their past five Premier League games since Mahrez's proposed move to City fell through, but coach Claude Puel has insisted the skilful winger conducted himself professionally throughout. "I'm not saying I'm coming or going".

"We always talk between me and the club, everything is good, so we will see in the summer if things come". Riyad is very honest and wouldn't get up to mischief.

Leicester City's Riyad Mahrez appears to have announced a break from football.

'It was a hard situation, but like I said, we've moved on now, everyone, the club, the chairman, me.

"But it's the past and I really don't want to talk about this. If we start talking about this it's like coming back to this transfer window and now I'm looking forward and trying to give my best for the team and that's the most important". "When the team-mates and the club were behind me it was okay, it was very easy to come back here". "Like I said, we moved on and now it's the past".

The Algerian is now exclusively focused on helping his side in the remaining games of the season, but declined to comment on his future, insisting he will not make speak on his decision until the end of the current campaign.

Mahrez has also been linked with Chelsea and Arsenal.

He may be a Leicester City player for now, but it most definitely won't stay that way when the summer is finally here, which is a scary thought.

"I want to thank everybody for the kindness and support they have shown me in this incredible city".
