Newcastle reject Slimani for Rondon

Leicester City striker Islam Slimani has been offered again to Newcastle United.

The Evening Chronicle says their top striker target is Salmon Rondon - with the Magpies having passed up an opportunity to re-sign Slimani .

The 30-year-old Leicester forward spent the second half of last season on loan at United, but played just 131 minutes of football and failed to score a goal.

A persistent thigh injury restricted his gametime on Tyneside, before a retrospective three-match ban for a needless off-the-ball kick at West Bromwich Albion's Craig Dawson saw the Algeria international's disappointing loan spell terminated early.

Portuguese clubs, including Sporting Lisbon, are keen on the Foxes striker - but are struggling to meet financial terms Leicester are demanding, or match Slimani's wage demands.
