Riyad Mahrez will return to Leicester City training on Friday

Riyad Mahrez will return to training on Friday and has made himself available for Leicester’s game at Manchester City on Saturday, according to reports.

The Algeria international has not trained with the club since his proposed transfer to City failed to materialise during the January transfer window.

Leicester manager Claude Puel said in his pre-match news conference on Thursday that Mahrez would miss the game at the Etihad, although the situation since appears to have moved on.

Puel has been keen to leave the way open for a return to first-team action for Mahrez, although it remains to be seen whether he will earn a place in Saturday's matchday squad.

Mahrez last played for the Foxes in the 2-0 win over Watford on January 20 and scored the second goal in stoppage-time.
