Albrighton was left out by Puel at the start of the Frenchman’s Foxes tenure but has now re-established himself in the side.
The 28-year-old winger, who has also been used in central midfield by Puel, put in another impressive performance in the 1-0 win over Burnley at the weekend and the Leicester boss has been delighted with Albrighton’s attitude during his time in charge.
Puel told the Leicester Mercury: “It was difficult at the beginning because he was a starting player and the first couple of games were difficult for him but it is never finished with me if a player shows his quality.
“It is important to reward him if he deserves it.
“Sometimes when not playing the player can come back with ambition after disappointment.
“He works a lot. We see that a lot on the pitch.
“I think it is a good thing for him to improve because we need a completed squad with all the players to play these games. It is important to offer different solutions.”
