Islam Slimani: Leicester forward joins Monaco on season-long loan having not played for Foxes since January 2018

Monaco have completed the signing of Leicester forward Islam Slimani on loan for the 2019/20 season.

The 31-year-old, who became the Foxes‘ record signing when he arrived for a reported £29million from Sporting CP in summer 2016, scored just 13 times in 46 appearances for the club.

He spent the second half of the 2017/18 campaign on loan at Newcastle, where he played four times without scoring, before another unproductive loan last term at Turkish side Fenerbahce.

Slimani has had some joy on the international front, however, helping Algeria win the Africa Cup of Nations earlier this summer.

He will now link up with Monaco and could make his debut for the Ligue 1 side at home to Nimes on Sunday.

The principality club have begun their campaign poorly, losing each of their two league matches so far 3-0. They have also had a player sent off in both games and sit bottom of the embryonic table on goal difference.

Yakou Meite: Reading back striker over racial abuse received on social media

Yakou Meite has been backed by his club Reading after revealing he was racially abused on social media following Sunday’s 3-0 defeat of Cardiff.

Meite, the Ivory Coast international, was introduced as a second-half substitute at the Madejski Stadium but saw an injury time penalty saved as the Royals secured an impressive victory.

The 23-year-old later posted a screenshot of the racist abuse sent to him, with the caption: “I don’t think i need to speak”.

Reading offered their support to Meite by posting a defiant message accompanied by a picture of Meite celebrating on Twitter.

The post read: “We won’t give oxygen to racist comments sent to this man via social media this afternoon. Instead, we will let a picture tell a thousand words – ‘We’ve got Meite… Yakou Meite…’.”

In response, Meite welcomed the show of solidarity, tweeting: “Thanks everyone for the support, we are all together thanks again.”

There have been multiple incidents of racial abuse of footballers on social media over the past year, with one occurrence already this season.

Last week, Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham became a victim of online racial abuse following his missed kick in the penalty shoot-out which decided the Super Cup against Liverpool.

Philippe Coutinho joins Bayern Munich on season-long loan from Barcelona with £109.8m option to buy

Bayern Munich have signed Philippe Coutinho on a season-long loan from Barcelona with an option to buy the Brazilian for £109.8million next summer.

The former Liverpool star looks set to end his sorry spell at the Nou Camp after the German champions agreed to pay £7.78m to take him on loan before making the move permanent at the end of the season.

Barcelona have been desperate to shift the 27-year-old forward for much of the summer following a disappointing season – and Tottenham were among the clubs linked with his signature.

But after rejecting a move to north London, the Spanish and German champions have confirmed the agreement for Coutinho to spend this season in Munich.

A Barca statement confirmed: “Bayern Munich will pay 8.5 million euros and the player’s wages.


“The agreement also sees an option to buy for Bayern fixed at 120 million euros.

“FC Barcelona would like to thank to publicly thank Philippe Coutinho for his commitment and dedication wishes him all the best in this new stage of his career.”
