Leicester City star confirms intentions to stay in January

mahrez8Leicester City fans playing darts in The Transfer Tavern are discussing comments made by one of their top performers so far this season.

Riyad Mahrez confirmed that he sees himself at Leicester for the immediate future during an interview with French radio station RMC.

The winger has been in fine form for Leicester City so far this season helping himself to 11 goals in 15 appearances. With Leicester currently sat top of the Premier League there were rumours that some of the bigger clubs were considering a January move for the player.

But that speculation was quickly put to bed by Mahrez who said:

“It’s best for me to stay until the end of the season, I was at Le Havre, I had six months left but nobody came to get me. Leicester tried very hard to get me. I could feel that they wanted me. I took the decision without knowing the culture or the area. It was a risk.”

“When you come from far away and you end up in the Premier League it makes you happy. I am happy that I signed for Leicester.”

The Leicester fans in The Transfer Tavern are delighted with Mahrez’s comments and are hopeful that if the club keep continuing the way they are that they can earn a Champions League place come May.

Where will Mahrez go next summer? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
