It seems that Newcastle are being very aggressive in this transfer window this month, and we have to be, if we are to save our Premier League status this season.
Loic Remy – bid accepted?
There was some news last night that Newcastle would be signing Loic Remy this week, and in time for the game against Reading next Saturday.
And today the Mail is reporting they think Newcastle have had a bid for Remy accepted, and it’s supposed to be around £10M.
We shouldn’t just assume this is a done deal, because it’s Sunday and lots of news is just made up to sell the Sunday papers, but this news is at the very least – encouraging.
It’s also consistent in that Derek LLambias is thought to be in France now working on some important transfer business, and its a follow-up meeting from last week when he met with Marseilles officials about Remy.
And Sky Sports reported last night they thought Newcastle were getting very close to signing the 26 year-old French International.
If this news is true, we see no problems with Newcastle then agreeing terms with the 26 year-old, and if the transfer is pushed through in the next couple of days, we could even see Remy make his debut at home to Reading on Saturday – a game we must win.
Remy’s capture would also bolster the crowd for Saturday, and we need a full house against Reading to cheer our lads on to victory, and scare the living daylights out of the Reading players.
This may be jumping the gun a bit, but we have to hope this latest news is true.
Here’s some YouTube video of the player, and some of it’s even on his football.
Howay The Lads!!
