Leicester prepared to reintegrate Mahrez after he misses training again
Leicester are prepared to take their time reintegrating Riyad Mahrez back into the club.
The Algeria international missed training on Tuesday after failing to land a deadline day move to Manchester City last month, Press Association Sport understands.
The Foxes travel to the Etihad Stadium on Saturday with Mahrez now expected to miss the game, having sat out the last two matches.
They will hold talks with Mahrez's representatives but will not rush the former PFA Player of the Year back.
A 'close friend' of Mahrez has been quoted saying the winger was depressed after the failed move and it has changed the dynamic of discussions.
Leicester need to be cautious with how they deal with the issue surrounding Mahrez's health.
Mahrez wanted to leave the King Power Stadium last month, handing in another transfer request following an initial one in the summer.
Leicester stood firm on their valuation though and eventually asked Manchester City for £80million cash.
