Riyad Mahrez to miss Leicester's match at Swansea, faces £200000 fine

Mahrez failed to attend training for the third time this week on Friday and is out of Puel's squad as the fallout from his failed move to Manchester City continues.

Mahrez is said to be "depressed" over having to remain at the East Midlands outfit and has missed two training sessions, developments which have led to Puel acknowledging that it is going to be a "tough decision to manage".

'Riyad Mahrez will be in turmoil after being denied his dream move to Manchester City - and I don't blame him, ' he explained in a Mirror column.

"I hope Riyad can clear his head and come back with us because he's a valuable player for us".

'I understand his disappointment.

'He's seen other star players being allowed to fly the nest for good money - so why are Leicester demanding a king's ransom for Mahrez? "It's of course always a hard situation and we will have to manage this situation with Riyad", Puel said.

Yet Mahrez has been left hurt by his club's refusal to sell to City, with whom he would have likely won a second league title.

The Foxes were ready to accept a straight cash deal of £80million for the Algerian insisting the figure was market value for the 26-year-old after Philippe Coutinho's move to Barcelona.

'A move to City would nearly guarantee him winning more trophies, possibly including the Champions League, and a chance to play for Pep Guardiola, arguably the best coach on the planet.

In the English top-flight, Coutinho has scored 41 goals in 152 appearances, good for a goal every 3.7 games.
