Leicester City strikers Islam Slimani and Leonardo Ulloa have sealed moves away from the Premier League club.

Algerian Slimani, 30, has signed a season-long loan with Turkish side Fenerbahce, while Ulloa joins Mexican side Pachuca on a permanent deal.

Ulloa, 32, spent four years with Leicester, winning the Premier League in 2016, before joining Brighton on loan in January.

The Argentine scored 20 goals in 101 appearances for the East Midlands club.

Slimani scored 13 goals in 46 appearances for Leicester after signing from Sporting Lisbon on a five-year-deal in 2016, for a fee thought to be a club-record £29m.

He spent the second half of 2017/18 on loan at Newcastle and joins former Premier League players Martin Skrtel, Roberto Soldado and Andre Ayew at Fenerbahce, who finished second in the Turkish Super Lig last season.
