Algerian international Riyad Mahrez secured his move to champions Manchester City on Tuesday seven months after his hopes were dashed when Leicester asked for too much.

The 27-year-old – pivotal to when Leicester stormed to a shock Premier League title in 2016 – signed a five-year contract for an undisclosed fee believed to be in the region of £60 million.

“I am so pleased to have joined City, a side playing great football under Pep Guardiola,” Mahrez told the Manchester City website.
