Mahrez Wants to Leave Leicester

Leicester City forward Riyad Mahrez has announced he wants to leave the club.

The 26-year-old, who joined from French club Le Havre for a reported £400,000 in 2014, said he had agreed “to stay for another season” following “a good discussion with the chairman” after the Foxes won the Premier League last year.

But he added he was “fiercely ambitious” and had “informed the club I feel now is the time to move on.”

Mahrez, PFA player of the year in 2016, made 48 Foxes appearances this season.

He scored 10 goals and provided seven assists as Leicester recovered from a poor start to finish 12th in the league this year and reach the Champions League quarter-finals.
