Leicester winger Riyad Mahrez has ended his self-imposed exile by returning to the club's training ground on Friday.

The 26-year-old has not trained with his team-mates since Manchester City launched a bid to sign him at the end of the January transfer window.

The Foxes blocked what would have been a dream move to the Premier League leaders for Mahrez, and he has subsequently missed the games against Everton and Swansea.

On Friday afternoon a statement from the club read: "Riyad Mahrez has today returned to training with the Leicester City squad.

"Riyad remains a greatly valued member of Claude Puel’s squad and is focused, together with his teammates, on achieving further success with Leicester City."
