Earlier on Tuesday, we relayed news from Fotospor claiming that Fenerbahce had told Islam Slimani to find himself a new club since he wouldn’t be playing for them any longer.
Of course, the final decision will be Leicester City’s, since he’s contracted to them until 2021, and everything will depend on whether Brendan Rodgers has any plans for the Algeria international going forward.
The Turkish outlet stated Slimani had already contacted his former team, Sporting CP, and reached an ‘agreement in principle’ with them, which we’re guessing is a contract for next season.
In a separate article, the same website look at what happened in January with the Leicester striker, who, already out of favour, should have returned to King Power Stadium in order to find himself a new loan for the second half of the season.
The problem was, nobody (English, French and Spanish clubs were interested) was prepared to reimburse Fenerbahce for half of the loan fee they paid in full (€3m) for the whole season.
Seeing as he was only with them for half a campaign, they wanted half of that money back.
Now, they’re just stuck with him until the end of the 2018-19 season.
