It may be bad news on the Loic Remy front, and just like we failed to get out number one target to Newcastle last summer Luuk de Jung, is could be that we will also fail to get Loic Remy to Newcastle in January.
Joey Barton – Remy staying put
Marseilles manager Elie Baup had said yesterday that he thought his top striker might stay and the club and when Barton was asked on that twitter account of his – yes he still has it active – if he could help to get Remy To Newcastle he tweeted the following:
“Think think he’s decided to stay put mate. Were all happy as he’s a big player for us and were trying to win the league”
Certainly Joey Barton and Marseilles are having a very good season, and they had one of their best starts ever, and at the moment they are level on 38 points with PSG and Lyon, but are third top because of their much poorer goal difference.
And Joey Barton seems to be doing well in France, and as well as picking up a French accent there, he was last month’s Player of the Month at the south France club, and of course he let everybody know that with his latest tweet.
But all the signs now seem to suggest Loic Remy will not move anywhere in January, but will stay with Marseilles to try to get them as French Champions again.
That’s not good news for Newcastle.
