The Algerian played a key role in Leicester’s shock Premier League triumph of 2015-16, scoring 17 goals and assisting 10, although his performances dipped last season.

“There’s a big difference between an offer and rumors, so there's nothing on the table at the moment,” he told Elheddaf Television.

“The President and I agreed I would stay at the club for another season and that he would let me leave at the end of that season.

“I think it’s the right time to leave. I’ve gone through everything I could at this club.”
