 Lyon complete signing of Leicester forward Slimani

Lyon have completed the signing of Islam Slimani from Leicester City on a free transfer.

The Algerian striker, 32, has spent time on loan at Newcastle United, Fenerbahce and Monaco in recent seasons.

He joined Leicester in 2016 and made just one appearance for Brendan Rodgers' side this season.

Lyon have allowed Moussa Dembele to join Atletico Madrid after Slimani's arrival.
