Riyad Mahrez has signed a new four-year contract with Leicester, tying him to the club until June 2019.

The 24-year-old Algeria international midfielder has made over 50 appearances for the Foxes since signing from French side Le Havre in January 2014.

City announced the contract extension after Mahrez impressed last term as they stayed in the Premier League. "Leicester City are delighted to announce that we have agreed terms with Algerian international Riyad Mahrez on a contract extension to June 2019," Leicester said.

Mahrez is poised to make his 50th league appearance for the Foxes in Saturday's Premier League season opener with Sunderland at the King Power Stadium.

Former Southampton forward Dani Osvaldo has completed a move to Porto, making the Primeira Liga outfit his fifth club in two years.

The 29-year-old Italy international has now moved to a new side, either on loan or for a permanent switch, in each of the last five transfer windows. After loan spells at Juventus, Inter Milan and Boca Juniors, Southampton released Osvaldo earlier this summer.
