There is news that Newcastle are already in advanced talks to take Loic Remy the Marseilles French International striker to Tyneside, and the good news is that it seems that Loic would be only too happy to come to Newcastle, and add to the growing French contingent at the club.
Loic Remy – in action for France
The 25-year-old has emerged as maybe Newcastle’s first (and only?) signing in January, but with talks already said to be underway, we hope Newcastle can get this lad in early in the window – so he can play a few games for us in January.
Newcastle could lose Demba Ba in January and also Shola Ameobi, if the Nigerian born striker elects to go play for his country of birth in the African Cup of Nations.
This is what Loic said to Sky Sports when told of Newcastle’s interest:
“They are a very good team,” “They are a big club with good players, very good fans and a nice stadium that is always full.”
“The window opens in January, and there will be speculation from now until the window closes – if I have to leave then all parties must be happy.”
“I have a contract so let’s wait and see what happens.”
This lad is a good player, and he would be an excellent signing for Newcastle, especially if we can tie it up early in January, and then we’d like to see a couple more players come through the door next month.
That would help make up for the mistake of bringing only one player in during the summer transfer window.
