Newcastle beat West Ham to Leicester striker Slimani

Slimani joins Newcastle on loan

Slimani joins Newcastle on loan

Rafa Benítez switched his attention back to Slimani, a player he has tracked throughout this month, after Newcastle failed to reach Feyenoord's £2o million valuation for Nicolai Jorgensen and lost out on a loan deal for Daniel Sturridge, who opted to join West Bromwich Albion.

Newcastle have agreed to let Aleksandar Mitrovic re-join former club Anderlecht on loan after striking a deal with Leicester for Islam Slimani.

Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez last week ruled out selling Mitrovic to a Premier League side after rejecting an £8million offer for the Serbia global, who wants to play ahead of the World Cup finals in the summer.

"I'm patient, but we will see", said the 23-year-old.

The broadcaster claim on the live transfer blog (31/01, 10:55) on their website that the Magpies have held negotiations with their Premier League rivals and are set to secure a deal until the end of the season for the Algerian worldwide. "It's not how disappointed I am or not, I want to concentrate on this game". "I'm patient, but we will see".
