Leicester boss Claude Puel has offered no guarantees record signing Islam Slimani will stay with the Foxes.
The striker has played just 10 minutes since Puel was appointed manager in October. He has failed to impress since a £30m move from Sporting Lisbon in August 2016, netting 12 times in 41 games.
“Time will tell to speak about the January transfer window but he is in the squad,” Puel told a press conference ahead of Saturday’s visit of Crystal Palace.
“He was on the bench for the first game. He provides the same option as Ulloa because Ulloa works very well in the training session, harder.
“I think now Islam Slimani is working very well also. It is always difficult for me to make assurances with competition between the players.”
