Leicester City captain and defender Wes Morgan says Algeria international Riyad Mahrez is still committed to the club.

Mahrez, who has handed in his transfer request at Leicester, is reportedly not giving his best performance for the English Premier League (EPL) club.

This is after the winger's current employers rejected a bid from Italian giants AS Roma, who are keen to acquire Mahrez's services during the current Transfer Window.

''Everyone knows about Riyad Mahrez. We`ve seen what a difference he can make,” Morgan told Leicester Mercury.

“He's got the key to unlocking defences. I think you can see on the pitch that he's not slacking.

“He's putting in a shift for the boys. He's a Leicester player and that`s all I can say," he continued.

“Whatever happens with a potential transfer, long may that continue to be the case when it comes to his attitude as after everything he's achieved with us.

"I don't think there's anyone that would like this to sour those memories and his displays.”

Mahrez, who is eager to leave the 2015/16 EPL champions, has also been linked with English giants Arsenal.
