Newcastle forward Islam Slimani's season is over after the FA handed his a three-match ban for violent conduct.
The ban will see the Algerian international miss Newcastle's final run in with games against Watford, Tottenham, and Chelsea, although the club is safe from relegation, after he was seen on video kicking out at West Brom's Craig Dawson last weekend. Slimani never got off and running on Tyneside since arriving on loan from Leicester City in the winter transfer window as a series of injuries prolonged his debut. In four appearances with Newcastle, Slimani made only one start and failed to score a goal. Said the FA in a statement: "Islam Slimani will miss Newcastle United's next three matches after he was charged with violent conduct. He accepted the charge but argued the suspension was excessive. This was rejected by an independent regulatory commission." May 3 - 3:38 PM
