Mahrez rules out PSG switch

Newly-crowned PFA Player of the Year Riyad Mahrez has ruled out a return to France after admitting he is happy in England.

Mahrez has spearheaded Leicester to the cusp of an unlikely English Premier League title this season alongside Jamie Vardy, with the duo scoring 39 goals between them.

The Algeria international has attracted interest of Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain after helping the Foxes move within three points of winning the league.

However, upon lifting the prestidious award, Mahrez claimed the French top flight doesn't excite him, not even the prospect of joining his hometown club.

"I'm not saying it's impossible. But I really didn't like it [playing in France]. I don't want to return to France," he said.

"PSG has become a very big club. They have strong players and the club is currently building a big project. I loved Marseille when I was a boy.

"Even today, Paris doesn't make me dream too. this is my town, but I don't see myself returning."
