    Leicester City superstar Riyad Mahrez is happy in England and doesn’t want to return to France with Paris Saint-Germain.

    The PFA’s Player of the Year, who scored 17 goals and registered six assists in the Premier League this season, is now ready to collect more silverware as the Foxes sit on the brink of Premier League title.

    Claudio Ranieri’s men now requires just three points to winning the Premiership from their remaining three matches after Tottenham Hotspur were held to a 1-1 draw by West Brom on Monday evening.

    The French champions Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly interested in the Algerian midfielder, who scored 17 goals and provided six assists this term – but the 25-year-old winger has no plans to return back to his homeland anytime soon.

    Mahrez said: “I’m not saying it’s impossible. But I really didn’t like it. I don’t want to return to France.

    “France doesn’t tempt me at all, I like England.”

    He added: “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.”

    Leicester now travel to Manchester United on Sunday, hoping three points would see them claim the league title.
