Riyad Mahrez

Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez has signed a new four-year contract with the Premier League champions. The Algeria international, 25, had been strongly linked with a move to Arsenal this summer. He scored 17 goals and added 11 assists last season and was voted the Professional Footballers’ Association Players’ Player of the Year. Mahrez joins team-mates Wes Morgan, Jamie Vardy, Kasper Schmeichel and Andy King in signing new contracts. Manager Claudio Ranieri has also signed a new four-year deal and, after losing midfielder N’Golo Kante to Chelsea, has repeatedly reiterated his desire to keep hold of the club’s top players. Mahrez joined the Foxes from French second-tier side Le Havre in January 2014.
