Leicester City have every intention of keeping winger Riyad Mahrez beyond the January transfer window, says Claude Puel.

The Foxes battled to a 0-0 draw against Chelsea on Saturday and highly sought-after Mahrez was arguably the standout player from both sides.

The Algeria international has been heavily linked with Liverpool, as a replacement for Philippe Coutinho following the Brazilian’s £142million move to Barcelona earlier this month.
