French Media Reporting Loic Remy In Newcastle For Talks


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.

    Remy is in Morocco.

    We won’t sign Remy!!!

    I could list all the playes we’ve been linked with who have been reported to be ‘on Tyneside’ but it’d take me a full friggin season.

    Ashley is an astute businessman and is well aware of the implications financially, should we take the plunge once again this season. A mere £20m investment in January would realistically bring in the talent to secure our eventual safety, Remy will join in January I am sure of it, along with a CB as yet to be mentioned within the media. Graham Carr will have unearthed some players surely. Keep the faith guys! Howay.

    Literally how hard is it to sign someone?

    I can’t be too different to buying a house.

    If you have the money in the bank (which we do) you ask how much the owner wants, you bid a little less, they accept or reject, you go back in if you want to or you move on.

    It literally takes 20 minutes, even with a scheming money grabbing agent encouraging you to go a little bit higher.

    This should have been done!!! I swear if I had half a brain I’d smash up my local sports direct in protest.

    We should do that you know. A sustained campaign of peaceful protests in sports directs throughout the country.

    Mmmmm…..eenteresting…..

    ‘Remy is not interested in a transfer to the red lantern English Premier League [QPR]’.

    Rednapp’s been at Loftus Road five minutes and Acton’s now a red light district!

    Maybe he turned down Ashley’s offer to join us when he found out there wasn’t much scope in the toon for him to develop that particular enterprise !!!

    Smashing up is peaceful? 🙂

    Until a photo is shown u cant prove he is in morocco.
    Do i believe he is on tyneside? No. But just cause OM sad he is going there doesnt mean he is.

    We know nothing until photos are shown of him in either place. Though i think we can all agree theres 90% chance his is in morocco

    This is last summer all over again, bring in one first teamer and then fanny about up untill the deadline only to hear “we tried” or “we’re not being held to ransome” . Its not as if we have an injury crisis like is it, but then again Cabaye & Ben Arfa will be just like new signings when they get back from injury

    Instead of smashing up maybe do to Ashley what he did to us.

    Get a bed sheet, paint st James park in big letters and pin it over all sports direct signs above the shops haha.

    Smashing something is peaceful in my head.

    It would be funny to cover over sports direct logos with NUFC adverts though.

    I’m with you on that. It’s pretty easy to get a flight from one place to another these days.

    I remain sceptical until it I reported by more people in more detail but we shall see.

    Underwhelmed by Remy.

    I predict a huge failed bid minutes before the window closing.

    “We tried but we just couldn’t get him over the line.
    Still we have Cabaye and HBA back soon and they are just like new signings.

    Just had a phone call, apparently Remy has left the training camp to come here, similar to what Cisse done last season, however, this comes from an un-reliable source, so its probably wrong

    Has anyone noticed the complete absence of ‘it will be a good window if the top clubs don’t come in for our players’.

    He only tows that line to try and keep us quiet.

    Yes Demba to Chelski might fall into that catagory but I had given up on him December 2011.

    I still expect that line to come out soon enough ‘yer know, your ben arfas, your cabayes and your cisses, it’d be a good window if we don’t sell them’.

    On this Remy being in Newcastle thing…Are we all trusting Ryder now? What if the club want everyone to think he’s not here? Not saying it’s likely or not, just saying.

    Ian, I have a feeling , with all due respect, that you would have been one of the ones supporting the 8 yr contract at the time. Or maybe the invisible 5 yr strategy. Yes we can all see that Pardew had had injuries but he has also had plenty of players who were not injured. We have enough quality to be doing far better than 11 losses in 14 or whatever it is . And losing to Brighton. Did u see the level of motivation on the pitch???? Its been an appalling season and Pardew and others ( including you ) need to stop hiding behind injuries. Pardews tactics, team set up, negative vibes, shocking free kicks and corners are nothing to do with injuries, just bad training and a stupid approach. Who dictates that we play a longer ball game than Stoke? And believe ne, if Pards doesnt cop himself on, Cabaye and other will leave NUFC because they wont want to waste their talents on him. If he firnly believed in 4-3-3 and a tighter passing, possession game, then why do we depart from that so much on the pitch, and why do our players back off so much in order to keep theoir formation. Its because, probably, the manager has a negative approach, and believes also in long ball football. Weere Ba’s comments today inaccurate ? Nope.

    @Beattie
    I imagine its quite difficult to sign someone from abroad. If you played in England and an Italian/French/German team came in for you, you’d want to see the offer on the table, talk to the club to see what their plans are, go see the stadium and training facilities, discuss moving details (apartment, removal trucks etc) plus time to think about your options. Its no easy decision.

    As I’ve been on a rant since saturday, can I also say that Santon looks like a REALLY BAD left back now? Little delivery going forward ( although great energy and technically good on the ball ) , crap and closing down his winger, as I have been saying all season. Its such a pity that we lost the Spaniard to Liverpool – on his days, wingers didnt even bother take him on!

    Sir Braveheart…Spot on. Using beatties example of house buying, you still have your surveys and due diligence to carry out before the deal happens.

    We know the club don’t announce information of any kind, so as always, we’ll have to keep guessing.

    But let’s admit it, most of us would get bored if it was too easy 🙂

    Not wanting to sound xenophobic but is there a limit to how many French players the club can / should have, in the sense that it could become a bit of a Gallic clique that may alienate other nationalities?
