There might have been similar faces around Leicester when they signed their first Algerian.

He only joined the club in the summer and has had a nomadic career including spells with Lyon, Bologna, Parma, Inter Milan, Livorno and Baniyas in the United Arab Emirates.

I am concerned he has been at so many clubs and no one has kept him around for long

Sounds exactly like the type of player we need.

Plays between the lines, holds it up, brings others into play, good in the air and can get a cheeky goal.

Good age as well.

Happy with this.

Wasent keen at first bit I am sorta coming round to the idea of this.

Like people have said, not every player has to be a world beater. This seems like the type of player that Koeman has described he needs and Walsh has gone and identified him.

This is the type of player that will allow Koeman to play more of the style he wants.

Sometimes players are bought in to help the system.

He seems more of a second striker in the mould of Naismith/Cahill and will be more of the link up for Lukaku.

Happy with this now.

Sounds good to me too.

Not a fan of the Walsh cliche/North African player preconceptions though.

A Belfodil sounds like some sort of nuskool insult like gopping spaff or whatever it was the other day.

Sounds a bit similar to the Gabbiadini guy. But cheaper

How fortunate we are to have supporters that know more than Walsh and Koeman together, why we don't let such supporters have the final say god only knows.

Strike rate is worrying -- 26 goals in 136 league games, with 11 of those coming in the UAE. Yes, I am sure he has subbed on in a lot of those games, and yes he has never really had a chance to settle anywhere since he is always moving (which is itself worrying), but that is a truly poor strike rate for someone branded as a striker (even if he does play as more of a second striker). Can't say I find this signing inspiring at all. Will just have to hope that Walsh and Co. know what they are doing!
