Leicester loanee deemed surplus to requirements in Turkey
Turkish giants Fenerbahce have told on loan Leicester forward Islam Slimani to find a new club, according to reports.
The Algeria international only joined the Istanbul-based club on loan from the Foxes last summer, but he has struggled for form during his time in Turkey, scoring just once in 15 league appearances and Fener are currently embroiled in a relegation battle.
Slimani has also seen his game time reduced significantly over recent weeks, as he has appeared in just one of Fenerbahce's last seven matches, and he has now reportedly been told he is surplus to requirements by coach Ersun Yanal.
The 30-year-old forward has two-and-a-half years left to run on his current deal with Leicester, but a return to the Foxes seems unlikely, which means he will be in need of finding a new club this summer.
One club that have been linked with a move for Slimani is his former side Sporting Lisbon, who sold the striker to Leicester for a reported £28million during the summer of 2016.
Slimani scored 27 league goals during his final season with Sporting, but he has only netted 10 times since leaving the Estadio Jose Alvalade, with eight of those strikes coming for Leicester.
