QPR Reported To Be Back In For Loic Remy


The London Evening Standard is reporting that QPR have not given up yet on Loic Remy – even though a fee has been agreed between Newcastle and QPR for the striker, and the news this morning was that Remy was undergoing a medical in Newcastle.

Loic Remy – QPR still in the hunt?

But the news today is that QPR are still hoping to do a deal with QPR, and of course it will depend on how much Newcastle are offering Loic Remy, who had refused to even meet with QPR manager Harry Redknapp when he traveled to France eight days ago.

We don’t know if this is a piece of mischief served up by the London press, but the news today was that Remy is in a medical at Newcastle – so if that’s true he must have agreed to the terms offered to him by Newcastle United.

And the news in the local papers this morning was that Newcastle hope to unveil Loic tomorrow as a Newcastle player, but of course QPR will be desperate to get some good players into their squad in January, and they will offer silly money in wages to get their men.

The Evening Standard is reporting that Redknapp had a £22M offer for Remy turned down by Marseilles 12 months, and if Remy were to enter into talks with QPR, his agents could look at the possibility of inserting a clause into his contract, that would allow him to leave were the London club relegated – much like Demba Ba had in his contract at West Ham two years ago.

We just have to hope Newcastle unveil the player tomorrow, and the fact we have top  French players like Yohan Cabaye, Ben Arfa, Sylvain Marveaux, Mathieu Debuchy and Gabby Obertan at the club,  will make it very easy for Loic to settle on Tyneside.

But David Craig of Sky Sports is also reporting that Remy will now speak to QPR – but we don’t know how true this story is – and surely Newcastle will not let Remy slip through their grip – so late in the game.

Finally,  the Evening Standard is still reporting that Newcastle are strong favorites to get the deal done, and we think that’s exactly what will happen.

Here’s hoping.

    We may dodge a bullet if Remy goes to QPR but I don’t he will. Debuchy sounded pretty confident in French press today.

    Francois Piraux :Rémy doesn’t want to sign for QPR. It’s NUFC or Marseille. Good project&friends at NUFC with Cabaye & Debuchy.

    Ignore this report. Remy refused to even meet QPR previously.

    Money talks…… I just hope this fella knows how huge a club we are and seriously the best fans in the world !

    Debuchy just signing has got to be a big help…..

    Hope most of the rumours are right and this is just paper talk…

    Piraux is a sports reporter. Usually reliable. Pretty spot on with the whole Debuchy affair and anything on Ligue 1.

    That’s fine, QPR can do a deal with themselves, but we’ve done a deal with Marseille, so Loic will be signing for us.

    toon 1707, couldn’t agree with you more, if he’s already rejected you, then why try again? Now he’s gonna be offered like 150k a week, i hope it doesn’t tempt him. LOIC PLEASE JOIN NEWCASTLE. QPR have got like 2 french players where’s we’ve got loads.

    I’ll be shocked if Remy meets Redknapp. The story goes that Redknapp wanted him whilst at Spurs, they met several times and Remy was interested. Now he is at QPR, Remy didn’t want to entertain Redknapp due to QPR’s position status – feeling embarrassed.

    If the (French) herd is going left to right you have to be very brave or very foolish to go right to left.

    I would imagine that Remy has probably spoken to some of our French players to get the low down on the club and the area. I can’t think of who he would speak to at QPR. The big attraction for QPR would be London and possibly more money but the downside risk would be relegation.

    His choice.

    Why would he go to a side almost certain to be relegated? He cant be short of a few quid, so money cant be his major motivation.

    I reckon Moussa Sissoko will either sign for us or Marseille. There’s no chance that he’ll go to Sunderland. Don’t forget, we need to bring in two strikers to replace Ba and 2 defenders if Coloccini leaves. If Tiote goes, we need to bring in Sissoko and M’Vila.

    It’s not down to the clubs. It’s down to the player himself and/or possibly his agent(s).

    On the basis that we can survive this season, and providing AP is given the backing in this window and next and there are no major departures….then one can say that AP has got his own team! He will mould them and hopefully a settled and consistent teams which SJP is crying out for…….it could bring the success that HBA, Cabaye and many others in the team crave.
    I’m still unsure about AP…..but if he can get marquee players in….then there must be something about him that he and NUFC are doing that is right…..remember we will never compete on wages with many other clubs. We do not want journeymen….such as Ba, Owen etc

    Besides….those people slating HBA for what has been reported must remember that the press takes comments completely out of context and twist them massively. Imagine you played for Arsenal or Chelsea and you supported NUFC as a yound lad…..what would you say?! Think about it….besides HBA has a long contract, is committed to the Toon, loves the Toon etc etc.
    My challenge for AP is after the window closes….and providing we sign good players….he will have no excuses not to get the results to turn our season around!

    ‘Arry is only doing what all managers do.

    We would expect Pardew to do the same.

    Something similar happened with Marveaux

    Ccalm down , ccalm down.

    ”Newcastle Debuchy “Remy called Cabaye”

    While Loïc Rémy seems closer to Newcastle, Mathieu Debuchy confirmed that Marseille striker had made ??inquiries about his future club. “He called Yohan (Cabaye), where I still am. He phoned last night. He asked the new club, know how it goes in Newcastle, “confirmed the former side Lille on RMC. ”

    Why would a top striker (who apparently was subject to a rejected £22M bid from Spurs last Summer) want to join QPR??? Their attendance is less that 18,000 in the Premier League (their stadium capacity is about 18,500) and they’re odds on to get relegated. Only reason he’d want that is if he wants a free transfer at the end of the season due to a release clause (thanks for that Ba!)

    It’s an £8M gamble from us though. He could be £20M striker brilliant, or he could be Patrick Kluivert for us…

    As reported, if Remy has rang Cabaye, then I can’t see that being a turn off can you? It was said that he talks to everyone when he’s back in France, about how good Newcastle is. If he’s been asked advice from Remy about Newcastle then I can’t see anything other than a glowing report being given. Why are we so low this year?… Lots of best players injured. It’s an easy excuse. Players fit we finished 5th. It’s def a selling point. Plus we have Debuchy and will hopefully get more.

    Well, is he going to go for more money? Or hook up with the on-going growin french contingent at the Toon?

    Big kirky – don’t think there is any doubt about it.
    Debuchy was quoted as saying Remy rang Cabaye.
