Slimani's career in pictures

Islam Slimani joined Newcastle on loan from Leicester City on a busy deadline day.

The Algeria international shone at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and has won silverware with Sporting Lisbon, joining the Foxes for a reported £28m in August 2016.

Here, we take a pictorial look at his career so far...

Born in Algiers on 18th June, 1988, Slimani made his international debut in 2012. Here, he battles for possession in an Africa Cup of Nations clash with Tunisia

He was part of his country's squad for the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil and scored twice in the tournament, including this goal against South Korea

Algeria reached the last 16 before losing after extra time to eventual winners Germany

Slimani had started his career with JSM Chéraga and CR Belouizdad in his homeland before joining Portuguese side Sporting Lisbon in August 2013

During a successful spell at Estádio José Alvalade he lifted the Supertaça Cândido de Oliveira and Taça de Portugal

Slimani scored more than 50 goals in three seasons in Portugal...

... before Leicester City broke their transfer record to bring him to the Premier League

In all competitions, Slimani has scored 13 goals in 23 starts for the Foxes - and will be looking to celebrate a few more in black and white following his loan move to St. James' Park
