At the press conference yesterday for the QPR game tomorrow, Alan pardew was asked about any Newcastle interest in Vurnon Anita’s former team-mate 20 year-old Dutch Under 21 international Jody Lukoki, and Alan said it was “news to him” but he did confirm Newcastle’s interest in another player who has been linked closely with Newcastle for a January move.
Loic Remy – Newcastle interested
The Newcastle manager was asked if there was any interest in Marseilles’ French International striker Loic Remy, and he had this to say:
“That’s a situation we are looking at.”
Remy seems to be in the dog house at Marseilles lately, and he is usually on the bench and in 12 appearances he has scored a couple of goals for the former French Champions, but this lad’s a good player and it’s probably a good time for him to move too..
And Alan Pardew said Newcastle were after two players in January, and then he added maybe three, so we think we could see more than the one player he said Newcastle were after last week.
We hope the other two are either Douglas or Mathieu Debuchy as the defensive reinforcements – and maybe Moussa Sissoko as a creative central midfield player - those three players could really help us to pull away from the bottom of the league table next year.
And talking about the league – let us know hows you think we’ll fare against QPR tomorrow.
