Riyad Mahrez will not play for Leicester against Swansea on Saturday as he "clears his head", with his return to the squad set to be carefully managed by the Premier League club.

"As a club, we took this decision for the good of Leicester", Puel told reporters at his pre-match news conference.

Leicester star Mahrez, meanwhile, was left emotionally crushed after the Foxes refused to sell him to Manchester City.

Leicester star Riyad Mahrez has sent the football rumour machine into overdrive this week after not turning up to training four days in a row!

"He would have made [Manchester] City better and stronger", Murphy said, "I think with the injuries they've got he'd have gone straight in [to the team]". It is a situation we need to manage, but all the details will stay inside the club.

"I will assess Riyad when he clears his head".

BJP, however, has asked the government to withdraw FIR against the army and instead register a case against the stone pelters. He was reacting to the filing of the FIR against Army personnel following the stone pelting incident at Shopian on Saturday.

"We can't change anything about the situation". It is important now to move on and to keep our focus on the pitch.

However, Leicester held firm and are said to have demanded £95 million (A$169.23 million) for the 26-year-old, leaving City to concede defeat in their pursuit.

"I can understand disappointment, and it was a good opportunity for him".

The City top brass were not prepared to go over £60m for the 2016 PFA player of the year with Roberts valued at £15m.

Mahrez has not trained since the possibility of a deal with the Premier League leaders materialised earlier in the week, and having not attended Thursday's session, he was again missing on Friday.

The former England worldwide went on the say that he believed Mahrez would definitely have started for City had the move gone through, especially considering their current injuries.
