There is news this morning in the French Daily L’Equipe, that Loic Remy has rejected a move to QPR, and seemed not to be swayed by the massive wages QPR offered him, and had to offer – to try to persuade the French International striker to join the small London club.
Loic Remy – turns down QPR’s lucrative offer
A Newcastle delegation were in France over the weekend, and we know that Remy is a top target of Newcastle’s to replace the departed Demba Ba, who got on his bike and moved to European Champions Chelsea last Friday.
Other clubs are interested in the Frenchman, but this has to look like good news for Newcastle, and we just hope we can tie up the signing of the Marseilles striker soon – we need him.
And if Newcastle can get Remy to Tyneside, we would have two very good acquisitions for Newcastle in Mathieu Debuchy and Remy, for close the £14M – and would show the Newcastle Board are serious in their attempts to strengthen our squad, so we have a decent chance to retain our Premier League status.
And then we need a center-back and hopefully we’ll make an attempt to also get Moussa Sissoko through the door this month.
A possible advantage to Newcastle is that Yohan Cabaye is a friend of the striker, and we’re sure he will have talked about Newcastle to him – a lot – as we learned from Mathieu Debuchy that he never stopped talking about what a great club Newcastle were during the European Championships last summer. 😀
We’ll just hope for the best, that Newcastle can get this lad in – and we’ve been interested in the player since early 2008, according to our archives.
