Newcastle beat West Ham to Leicester striker Slimani

Newcastle beat West Ham to Leicester striker Slimani

Newcastle United have beaten West Ham with the race for Islam Slimani, who will be joining them on loan from Leicester City - despite his injury.

Puel has no objections to Slimani leaving, despite already allowing striker Leonardo Ulloa to leave the King Power Stadium this window, and he faces a tough fight to keep Slimani's Algerian counterpart Riyad Mahrez, as Manchester City step up their chase.

And the Gazette reported earlier this month that Slimani was "high" on the club's shortlist.

Slimani will join the club on loan until the end of the season that may contain a buy-out clause.

Keith Downie, a reporter for Sky Sports, reported the player had completed the first part of his medical ahead of a deadline-day deal for the 29-year-old Premier League striker.

However, it's understood that relegation rivals West Ham will rival Newcastle for the former Sporting Lisbon forward's signature.

Newcastle's toothlessness in front of goal was again showcased on Wednesday night, with Rafa Benitez's men drawing 1-1 at home to Burnley.

As for Newcastle, they have already failed in a bid for Daniel Sturridge and were priced out of a move for Feyenoord hitman Nicolai Jorgensen.
