STARS IN EUROPE - ALGERIA - CLUB - Mahrez says he wants to leave Leicester

Leicester City Riyad Mahrez


Riyad Mahrez Leicester forward releases statement asking to leave the club.

Riyad Mahrez has scored 10 goals and provided seven assists for Leicester this season

Leicester City forward Riyad Mahrez has announced he wants to leave the club.

The 26-year-old, who joined from French club Le Havre for a reported £400,000 in 2014, said he had agreed "to stay for another season" following "a good discussion with the chairman" after the Foxes won the Premier League last year.

But he added he was "fiercely ambitious" and had "informed the club I feel now is the time to move on."

Mahrez, PFA player of the year in 2016, made 48 Foxes appearances this season.

He scored 10 goals and provided seven assists as Leicester recovered from a poor start to finish 12th in the league this year and reach the Champions League quarter-finals.

In a statement Mahrez wrote: "Out of the huge admiration and respect I hold for Leicester I wanted to be totally honest and transparent. I have informed the club that I feel now is the time for me to move on.

"I had a good discussion with the chairman last summer and we agreed at that time that I would stay for another year in order to help the club as best as I could following the transition of winning the title and in the Champions League.

"I've had the four best seasons of my career at Leicester and have loved every moment.

I feel immense pride to have been a part of what we have achieved during my time at the club, culminating in becoming Premier League champions.

"The relationship I share with the club and our amazing fans are something I will treasure forever and I truly hope they will understand and respect my decision."
