Riyad Mahrez is likely to stay at Leicester for at least the rest of the season, with his agent doubting he will be sold in the January transfer window.

The attacking midfielder has been in sensational form this season, scoring 13 goals to help propel Leicester to the top of the Premier League table.

That has led to speculation that one of the Premier League giants could try to lure him away in January with a bumper bid.

But agent Kamel Bengougam says there has been no bid, and added that Mahrez wants to stay and the club are not likely to entertain selling him.

The agent told Sky Sports News HQ: "I don't think Leicester want to sell him and he is focused on doing well with them. I think he will stay in January."

Mahrez signed a four-year deal in the summer.
