Leicester striker Slimani open to Newcastle stay

Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez shouts encouragement during the Premier League match between Crystal Palace and Newcastle United at Selhurst Park

Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez shouts encouragement during the Premier League match between Crystal Palace and Newcastle United at Selhurst Park

One of the new loan signings is Slovakian goalkeeper Martin Dubravka from Sparta Prague.

Jose Mourinho has offered his backing to Newcastle United boss Rafa Benitez, despite the two having a hard relationship in the past.

Newcastle have secured the shot-stopper's services until the end of the season, but it has been revealed they have the chance to make his move to Tyneside permanent.

Slimani found his opportunities limited at Leicester, where Jamie Vardy was the Foxes' first-choice striker.

And Newcastle's manager hopes than will translate into fewer mistakes in games.

"The big difference is that he trusts me and when you have the trust your coach, that is very important", he said. But then I was dogged by bad health and injuries.

Newcastle are hoping Islam Slimani will be available after thigh trouble prevented him from making his debut against Crystal Palace last weekend.

"I lost and I drew a few times [at Newcastle], I hope the result is different but I know the characteristics of the game will not be hard".

Fiorentina know this, and that's why there's no real worry for now, as a number of clubs, on top of José Mourinho's and Pep Guardiola's, are after the young forward. I have seen a lot of teams playing with the [defensive] line on the penalty spot and the midfielders on the edge of the box, and they were doing a fantastic job.

Mourinho was winless in six attempts at Newcastle during two spells in charge of Chelsea FC before he took over the reins at Old Trafford back in May 2016. We have to see if he is feeling tomorrow to see if he can start. Benitez knows how to get points. "We have to learn to score the second goal & manage things a little better".

Reports also suggest that Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho will not make the negotiations easy as he will demand at least 2 of Isco, Marco Asensio, and Raphael Varane to let De Gea join the Los Blancos.
