Islam Slimani joins Fenerbahce on loan

Algerian striker Islam Slimani has agreed to move to Fenerbahce for a season-long loan.

Fenerbahce have reached an agreement with Leicester City for their Algerian striker Islam Slimani.

The 30-year-old will spend the 2018/2019 season on loan with the Yellow Canaries. He arrived in Istanbul at midnight and will watch his new teammates take on Bursaspor from the stands.

The Super Lig club will pay Leicester City €1.5 million for the loan and will cover the player’s salary, which is reported to be €4.2 million per season.

The deal does not include a permanent transfer clause, meaning Slimani will return to England upon the expiration of his loan.

His wife, Yousra Slimani, posted a cryptic message on his Instagram page earlier today, signaling his transfer to Turkey.
