Leicester star Riyad Mahrez rules out switch to PSG

Leicester City

Leicester City are one win away from being crowned Premier League champions.

Leicester City winger and PFA Player of the year Riyad Mahrez has ruled out a move to Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain, as reported by Sky Sports.

Mahrez picked up the award for the Premier League's best player on Sunday night, following his side's 4-0 thumping of Swansea City, and he quickly moved to dispel the rumours linking him with Laurent Blanc's men.

"I don't really want to go back to France," Mahrez said. "France does not really excite me, I love England."

The Agerian's comments will be music to the ears of Leicester fans, as they will be expecting some of Europe's elite clubs to come in for the likes of Mahrez over the summer.

The Foxes have enjoyed a quite incredible climb to the top of the Premier League, and currently hold a seven-point lead over second placed Tottenham Hotspur.

Mahrez explained how the team spirit has been crucial in their rise to the top.

"We are fighters," he said. "And when I say to you 'fighters', I have never seen anything like this in my life. The guys are hungry like crazy and they let nothing go. You blast a shot straight into a guy's face and he doesn't even flinch."

Leicester head to Old Trafford next weekend to take on Manchester United, and a win would see them lift the top flight title for the first time in the club's history.
