  • Mahrez celebrates after his late equaliser against Bournemouth last weekend

The 27-year-old did not train for 10 days and missed two matches after his proposed transfer to Premier League leaders Manchester City collapsed in January.

Leicester's Riyad Mahrez is reportedly edging closer to a summer exit after Roma open negotiations to bring the winger to the Serie A next season.

"I was away from here because I needed some time to think, it was a hard situation", Mahrez told Sky Sports.

"We will see in the summer if something comes, but at the moment I'm a Leicester City player and I'm good here". It is behind me. It's behind me and if we start talking about this it's like coming back to this transfer window.

At that time I thought it was the best thing to do. "It was a hard situation but we moved on, everyone - the club, players, me". The club handled it very well. Like I said, when my teammates and the club was behind me it was very easy to come back.

Mahrez, who has promised to give his all to the club for the remainder of the season, can add to his impressive tally when the Foxes travel to face league dwellers West Brom on Saturday.

"I am not saying I am going to leave or going to go".
