‘Mahrez still a Leicester player’

Leicester City captain Wes Morgan understands Roma’s interest in his teammate Riyad Mahrez – “it’s to be expected”.

The Giallorossi are keen to sign the Algerian winger, and he’s admitted that he’d like to speak with them.

However, a second offer of €35m has reportedly been rejected, and it was suggested today that the capital club had abandoned their pursuit of him.

“It’s to be expected that big clubs will be after our biggest name players,” Foxes captain Morgan told Sky Sports UK.

“At the end of the day he is still with us. He is a still a Leicester player and that’s all that matters. We can’t think about what could happen or where he might go.

“At the training ground we all train together and I have to say is his attitude has been great.

“He hasn’t shown that he is angry or that he is upset in any way or that his head is not in it. He comes in and he trains hard.

“We expect players to come and players to go. [N’Golo] Kante went and there were no hard feelings there. We’d all love Riyad to stay, but who knows what will happen.”
