If Remy Moves At All – It Will Only Be To Newcastle


The Evening Chronicle (Lee Ryder) is reporting potentially good news today, that Loic Remy will only move to Newcastle United, if he moves at all in January. There was news both yesterday and today that Loic Remy may just stay put at Marseilles, and we know Newcastle are going to put in a bid for the player in the next couple of days, but it seems the French striker is not interested in moving to either Schalke 04 or Burussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga – who are also interested in acquiring the player.

Loic Remy – told close friends he will only move to Newcastle

Apparently Loic has told close friends that his most likely destination this January will be Newcastle United, if he does make a move.

But it also seems this move could be held up because Newcastle and Marseilles cannot agree a fee, and Newcastle fans will be frustrated if that happens (again), because that was the main reason we couldn’t get Mathieu Debuchy to the club last summer.

Certainly Newcastle have not given up hope on the 17 times capped French International, although there have been many conflicting reports over the last couple of days, about what the real situation is with Remy.

And it seems Remy is pals with not only Yohan Cabaye, but also with former Newcastle left-back Olivier Bernard, and Olivier had this to say today:

“I don’t think he will move to Germany.” “I think he will come here or stay in Marseilles.”

It’s hard to know what the real situation is with Loic Remy, but we’d be very happy to be surprised and have the player sign on at Newcastle soon, and if that happens it will give the manager, the players and the fans a huge boost.

Howay the Lads!!

    all the talk about remy cb is main area
    talk of tompkins boyatao and pieters although it would relieve cb problem dosent disguise the fact that what is need is a captain (eng if poss ) someone to win ball in air… do not know who though …only know no one mentioned fits the bill…

    I know it is frustrating waiting for signings but so far there have only been 5 transfers made in the PL. Have a bit of patience, they will come.

    or maybe remy just told joey he wasnt going as no bids were made other than QPR and he said he wasn’t going anywhere because currently he has no other offers.

    The amount of time you hear…X is a done deal or Y isn’t for sale at any price and then the opposite happens shows talk is cheap and things change quickly.

    The biggest obstacle to us recruiting players of any quality, in the positions we are so desperately lacking, would appear to be the Negotiator we have in charge of the process.

    I’m sure Lambsarse must have been at least highly competent in his “Day Job” to get where he did; He just seems to have no idea how to operate in the field he now chooses to work in. HE is a bigger square peg, in a round hole, than any of the players we put on the pitch!!

    The “Peter Principal” being lived out, in full technicolour, at NUFC!! What a shambles.

    A big strong commanding centre back is needed but not as much as a new centre forward.
    If cisse gets injured we would be in big trouble shoals can only play half a game.
    Ranger never looks like scoring and Campbell is untested.

    Ryder knows sh!t. This article for Luuk De Jong… the similarities is shocking and we all know what happend with De Jong. When Ryder said “close source to the players” it’s a short version of “I don’t have a clue”.

    Lee Ryder has to toe the part line with Newcastle as the Chron sells more papers through it`s Newcastle coverage than anything else.
    Mick Lowes works for the radio and I see him as being able to be more independent

    I would say a CB is higher priority for me but both are needed in Jan, not one or the other.

    I think Campbell would be a revelation ala rooney, owen, sterling, etc but we wont find out as we persist with Nile ‘gangsta’ Ranger.

    TorqToon – that would be very good news about a possible delegation to Montpellier. I’ll jump for joy if the target is Belhanda. I did a post on him a couple of months ago – a terrific player. I think it was yesterday a couple of the lads mentioned him and one described a bit of his “bad boy” image and that if he came to the Toon Percy Parsnip would be driven to a heart attack. I had this momentary naughty thought of thinking -sign him up straight away. Montpellier are supposed to want to sell him -there has be alleged interest from Fenerbahce -but this has been denied. If he’s on the shopping list excellent.

    Tuff – Belhanda has the same sort of reputation that a certain Hatem Ben Arfa had throughout the French league. And he’s not done badly for this club.

    If it was my money – is stick in say £15mil offer for both players (Belhanda and Mbiwa) and say ‘take it or leave it’. I think that could be enough to bag both players at its not why I would call ‘breaking the bank’!

    Unfortunately it’s NOT my money…! If only! 🙂

    Outside the box – I agree. We lack true leadership this season in the form of a Nolan, shearer and dare I say – Barton?!

    It would put the cat amongst the pigeons but Mbiwa could be a future skipper of this side once language issues has been resolved. 🙂

    Of our current crop, I always feel Stevie T bleeds black and white but we can’t seem to get him on te park for any length of time.

    It’s a tough one. Don’t want to completely write off Colo – I just think he needs more leaders around him.

    Frankfurt – you have a link for that?

    Would be amazing but maybe too costly. I know Chelsea were offered him a month or so ago but since signed Ba who was much cheaper. Great goalscorer but possibly just putting 2&2 together.

    Would cost £16-17mil.

    I would stick a bid in for Massadio Haidara also. Highly rated CB from Nancy.

    There manager has quit his position so I would take advantage of that.

    Torq – taking advantage of another teams predicament – well I never, whatever next!! Our club is managed by honourable people, we would never do such a thing!!

    Unless of course somebody actually told them there was an opportunity to be had – they probably wouldn’t even know!!

    @torq

    i completely agree with mbiwa and stevie t
    taylor was always my future captain as he had so much passion just think the injury had an impact on him and i’m hopeing time will solve it.
    collo will always be a great defender but too much pressure is on him as our other defenders are not top class and i think his confidence and the fact he hasnt really had a break or a good run of results is showing.
