Riyad Mahrez ended his self-imposed exile from Leicester City ahead of Saturday’s match against Manchester City.

Mahrez, 26, has not featured in two matches or training since the move to Manchester City failed.

According to reports, Mahrez has been hit with a £240,000 ($334,000) fine for failing to report to training over the past week.

Unfortunately, the Foxes have struggled without their Mahrez, losing 2-1 at Everton before a one-all draw against Swansea City.

Despite a second transfer request from Mahrez in eight months, Leicester reportedly held out for a deal worth £80 million, with even City’s cash-rich Abu Dhabi owners unwilling to go beyond a reported £50 million plus an unnamed player they valued at £15 million.
