Islam Slimani has been charged with violent conduct

Islam Slimani is currently on loan at Newcastle

The Algerian international has been charged by the FA for violent conduct following an off-the-ball incident.

He clashed with Craig Dawson following Newcastle’s 1-0 default to all but relegated West Brom.

Slimani, 29 lashed out on the 80th minute which was not seen by the referee, however the incident was caught on camera.

Slimani and Dawson clashed on Saturday

The charge will mean Slimani will return back to Leicester this summer having played just 130 minutes for Newcastle.

Sadly a huge £2m loan fee and excessive wages of £80,000 per week means he will go down in history as a massive flop at Newcastle.

Islam joined Newcastle on January deadline day

The Algerian signed on deadline day in January, however due to a thigh injury he was on the sidelines until March.

Slimani was keen to impress at Newcastle to force a move away, which is now unlikely to happen.

Islam has until Tuesday 1st May to appeal against the decision, but a 3 game ban is likely.
