Premier League champions Manchester City have sealed a £60m deal with Leicester for Algeria's Riyad Mahrez, with the Foxes ace set to undergo a medical analysis with the next two days, reports suggest.

They walked away from a potential deal for Mahrez in January because they were put off by Leicester's valuation.

The Algeria worldwide has signed a five-year contract with the Manchester outfit and will wear the number 26 jersey.
