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!!
