Leicester Islam Slimani striker has officially joined Fenerbahce in a one-season loan contract for the 2018-1919 campaign.

Slimani, the Leicester record signing for a fee of £ 30 million in 2016, has not had an impact on the Midlands and spent the second half of last season in Newcastle.

The 30-year-old now moved to Turkey, with Fenerbahce announcing Saturday night that he had passed his medical exam and signed his contract.

Slimani has scored 12 goals in 47 appearances with Leicester, but could not replicate the one against one that showed at Sporting Lisbon, which led former city boss Claudio Ranieri to sign him.

A statement on the Turkish club's website said: "Our club has reached an agreement with the English team Leicester City to participate in the census as a one-year lease for Islam Slimani.

& # 39; Algeria national team player Islam Slimani, after health checks, signed the official contract that makes it Fenerbahce & # 39;

"Fenerbahce finished second in Turkish Super Lig last season, securing his place in the Champions League qualifying round."
