Newcastle pip West Ham to Slimani loan

IslamSSlimaniLeicester has agreed to loan Islam Slimani to Newcastle for the remainder of the season beating West Ham to his signature on transfer deadline day.

West Ham offered a deal which with a loan fee, wages and the agent’s cut exceeded £5m but Newcastle won the race even though they made a much lower bid of £4m including a loan fee of £2m and wages and agent fees topping another £2m.

A West Ham insider said we know the player’s agent well and the player said he wanted to come to us but Leicester decided to do a deal with Newcastle even though we outbid them.

  1. From that I would guess the player didn’t fancy us.
    Who could blame him really?

  2. Actually we tried to steal him from them. It was already reported during the last 2 weeks that he was negotiating with Newcastle.

  3. Not according to the last paragraph.

    • that doesn’t conflict with the fact that he was talking with Newcastle. I should say his agent was talking to Newcastle as it is always the case that the agent does the negotiating.

  4. These windows are like watching a carry-on film when west ham are involved !!
    Gives an insight to the feeling towards west ham if we offered more money and still missed out ! Or is it all just the PR bolloxxx to make it look like they’re trying to do business !
    It makes you feel that way I’m afraid ! Still there’s 11 hours left to get a few more laughs 😂

  5. I was replying to MMG sleeps

  6. Leicester clearly prefer less money from Newcastle than deal with our Chairman I guess. I don’t actually find it that strange….

  7. I wonder with all these prudish foreign owners whether religion and our owners industries plays any part in this. Certainly with all the press they receive there does seem a reluctance from some to do business with them.

  8. I’ve often wondered whether part of Slaven getting sacked was his comment that he found the “Dildo Brothers” comment funny

  9. If he wanted to come and we genuinely bid £1m more for a loan, it is stretching belief to understand why they went with Newcastle, usual media lies again…
