Fenerbahce's Transfer Announcement Of Islam Slimani Might Be The Worst Ever

Leicester City paid a hefty £30 million for the services of Islam Slimani back in 2016, but the Algerian forward struggled to nail down a regular place in the first team, despite expectation being relatively high on his arrival from Sporting Lisbon.

The forward scored just eight goals in 39 appearances for the Premier League side and after a failed period with the club, Turkish side Fenerbahce have decided to sign the player on season-long loan.

To celebrate his arrival, their official Twitter account have produced one of the best and worst announcements of all time.


We're not sure whether we really like the simplicity of it all, or hate it - you decide.

Fenerbahce released the following statement on his arrival, as they prepare to face Benfica in Champions League third qualifying.

"Our club has reached agreement with the English team Leicester City to participate in the census as a lease for one year of Islam Slimani.

"Algeria national team footballer Islam Slimani, after the health checks, signed the official contract that makes him Fenerbahce.


"We wish Slimani endless successes with our barbed form!"

Besiktas and former club Sporting Lisbon wanted to sign the striker, according to Kaveh Solhekol, but Slimani decided to join the Turkish giants in a move that has pleased fans.


Do you think he will flourish at his new club? Have Leicester made a mistake in letting Slimani go this summer?

Let us know in the comments.
