Leicester defender Danny Simpson says Riyad Mahrez has held clear-the-air talks with his team-mates.
Algeria international Mahrez trained on Friday having not done so since Leicester rejected a £60m Deadline Day offer from Manchester City.
Mahrez came on as a substitute in Leicester's 5-1 defeat at Manchester City on Saturday - a game that saw Sergio Aguero score four times for Pep Guardiola's side - and Simpson confirmed the matter is now closed.
"He came in and spoke to the lads on our own in the dressing room and that's it, we move on," Simpson told Sky Sports News.
"[On Saturday], in flashes, he has shown why he is a good player and obviously he is back in the team and we are all delighted."
Leicester play Sheffield United in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Friday night before taking on Stoke at the King Power Stadium when they return to Premier League action on February 24.
Coverage of Leicester v Stoke begins on Sky Sports Main Event, Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Mix at 11:30am.
