Riyad Mahrez not in Leicester squad to face Swansea City

Piers Morgan tweets after Riyad Mahrez misses Leicester training for fourth straight day

Piers Morgan tweets after Riyad Mahrez misses Leicester training for fourth straight day

Leicester City drew 1-1 with visitors, Swansea, on Saturday at the King Power Stadium.

"Clubs don't have to say yes, they're in a position to push a bit harder in the negotiations, but they also knew City needed to get it done quickly so there's that time element there as well".

Leicester manager Claude Puel is maintaining an upbeat tone about the standoff. "If the players don't play and don't follow, you can have the best plans in the world but it will not work for sure". "We have lost the last seven here". We can not change the situation - the transfer window is finished.

The absence of Mahrez is surely set to be felt again.

With Mahrez out of the side in their last two Premier League matches the Foxes have struggled, losing at Everton and then getting a point against relegation-threatened Swansea.

It's hard to forget how Leicester City won an unexpected Premier League title during the 2015-16 season, rising above vast adversity, and showing grit and determination against the well established sides.

The former Le Havre winger has now seen two clubs come and go empty handed, the first one being AS Roma back in the summer, who also saw all three of their bids rejected.

One other problem that appears to have plagued the team so far this season is their ability to score. The Foxes will have to travel to The Etihad next in the Premier League when they face off against league-leaders Manchester City next Saturday. However, victories over Liverpool and Arsenal have given fans reason to be optimistic. Renato Sanchez will likely miss out through injury. Roque Mesa and Ollie McBurnie have joined Sevilla and Barnsley on-loan respectively so they will be ruled out.

One spin-off of the January revival is that the club is suddenly more attractive in the transfer window with Ayew's brother, Andre, reportedly considering an 18 million-pound move to return to Wales from West Ham United.

"Riyad is not available for this game".
