Islam Slimani will miss the final three games of his loan spell at Newcastle through suspension after accepting a charge of violent conduct, the Football Association has announced.
The 29-year-old Leicester striker was charged after kicking out at West Brom defender Craig Dawson following his introduction as a substitute during Saturday's 1-0 Premier League defeat at St James' Park.
While admitting the offence, which was not spotted by referee David Coote, Slimani challenged the severity of the punishment, but failed in a bid to have it reduced.
