Riyad Mahrez has ended speculation over his future by signing a new four-year deal with Leicester City.

Mahrez was voted the PFA Player of the Year and Football Writers’ Player of the Year after leading the Foxes to an unlikely Premier League title last season.

However, uncertainty has surrounded his future ever since, with both Arsenal and Chelsea persistently linked with a move for the Algerian.

The Algerian reportedly met Chelsea manager Antonio Conte at a hotel earlier this week, although the winger himself rubbished such rumours.

Mahrez conducted an interview earlier this week stating that he would consider his future only if “two or three” unnamed clubs pursued him.

But the 25-year-old has now ended all speculation concerning his future by signing a new deal at the King Power Stadium.

According to reports, the new contract does not include a release clause.
