There are a number of reports in France saying that Newcastle are the only club now after Loic Remy the Marseilles striker, and that the player has flown into Newcastle for talks.
Loic Remy – in Newcastle right now
This is one report in the French media and here is a poor and abbreviated translation of the report:
Harry Redknapp, the coach of the English QPR was at the stadium yesterday take a look at Loïc Rémy, but Remy is not interested in a transfer to the English Premier League.
Newcastle therefore remained the sole candidate. On Sunday evening, Marseille president Vincent Labrune however, showed himself confident that the Magpies went back after him. At the same time, there was really no other interests.
The Gazzeta Dello Sport newspaper reports that Inter Milan would like to take Loic Remy in the form of a loan – but they have already signed the veteran Rocchi of Lazio earlier this year.
Interest of Dortmund and Schalke 04 is up in the air, and according to our information, Remy is currently in England. It could even sign his contract with the Magpies in the coming hours.
Toon leaders believe in the potential of the player without him putting pressure. Papis Cissé was called to replace Demba Ba in the 4-2-3-1 of Pardew immediately.
We have to hope the report is correct but other news this morning suggested that Loic Remy was not interested in the big wages offered by QPR, and of course he could settle in rather quickly at Newcastle, with the large French contingent, which could get even bigger this month.
Newcastle have already signed Mathieu Debuchy and there other French targets the club are also after.
Let’s hope we get some good news on Remy shortly.
