Newcastle Negotiating Sensible Deal For Loic Remy


When the news broke yesterday that Newcastle had entered into negotiations with QPR to sign Loic Remy on a season-long loan deal, we thought that may be because QPR didn’t want to sell him outright this summer.

Loic Remy – season long loan deal

But there have been additional news reports since then that QPR would sell the striker this summer for about £6.8M, which would be a better deal than the £8M Newcastle were willing to pay for the striker in January, before he went to QPR at the last moment for the big wages.

If Newcastle can get the French striker on a season-long loan deal with an option to buy next summer, then Newcastle can judge how good he is, before they buy him permanently, and that seems like a good approach.

However, there are also some dangers with this, because if Remy has an outstanding season for the Magpies, then other top clubs may move in and try to sign him for what would be a bargain price. that’s if he say gets close to 20 goals for Newcastle next season.

Those top clubs could offer Remy better wages than Newcastle could, and there lies the possibility he could reject Newcastle for a second time, for bigger wages elsewhere.

It would be déjà vu all over again. 🙁

That would not be good, so there are also risks in not signing the 26 year-old 18 times capped French International now, although there may be provisions to sign him in January, if he starts his career well at Newcastle.

That’s what we did with Ben Arfa, so there’s a precedent there.

And there’s one other thing, and that’s Remy has to go on trial for that rape charge, and if he is found guilty, then he’s QPR’s player and not ours, and that’s an advantage to Newcastle, and another reason why Newcastle may not want to sign him until they know the outcome of the rape trial.

That all sounds sensible to us, if that’s why Newcastle want him on loan for a full season first.

What do you think?

    We scored six goals in our last ten games of the season, in two and a half years we have released or sold seven strikers while bringing in two who are you trying to kid.

    Probably if Remy hadn’t his court case hanging over him we would try and buy him. MA will not want to shell mils out and then Remys eating porridge instead of playing.

    Aye if Pardew would only play Cabaye in a more advanced role and play Sissoko and Anita behind him, we really need 2 c more of Marveaux this season, he’s a great player, wasted on the bench,

    JackButler

    Agan it can prob come down 2 Cabaye being player 2 far back, we need our creative players pushed forward 2 create for the strikers but that isn’t happening under Pardew

    ToonDarnSarf

    I kno wer ur cumn from, i remember David Nugent being a real top striker in the Championship and never made it in the top flight but on the other hand i remember Henrik Larsson being brilliant in Scotland and people saying that it was just bcos it was the SPL and that he’d never had made it anywer else, Larsson went 2 Barca when he was in his 30?s and was pretty good and had a good stint at UTD 2, chances hav 2 b taken sumwer, offering Blackburn a few of our fringe players like Gosling and Amilfitano could b a good way of getting the price down 2, just my opinion tho

    Rémy is the best of all our targets clearly… But what a risk. And by the way, i’m not happy with the idea to sign a guy who could be found guilty of rape…

    Sure, he’s supposed to be innocent right now, but if i was Ashley, i would hire a good P.I to know what is in the Yard’s file, and if there’s material elements against him, would not sign him.

    In a perfect world I’d love to see either Cabaye or HBA playing in a more advanced role as playmaker, both are capable of doing it but we have Cab’s sitting way too deep and HBA on the wing with Sissoko as our No#10 and the result is that there is little to no link between our midfield and Cisse, something that has to change this coming season

    Damn Remy for being accused of rape! Maybe that is the reason we haven’t activated his release clause and only offered a loan deal.

    It’s just typical NUFC. The player that ticks all the boxes and could transform our fortunes just had to have some sort of thing making things harder for us.

    I would love to see him here on the left of a front 3 of Remy Cisse HBA. Now that will be scary. Then if Cisse is not playing well swap him for Gomis in the second half.

    Then all we would need is a winger like Mertens or Boudebouz and we have proper competition all over the field and a challenge for anyone. It’s so easy it pisses me off that we seem clueless all the time.

    Come on NUFC get these bloody players over the freaking line already!!!!

    JP, took kk

    there’s really no telling what we’d do if remy didn’t have this charge against him. after last summer and moreso this JK appointment, there really is no methodology to predict what MA will or will not do. I was fully on his side last summer, even with the lack of signings. his continued belief in Pardew, his appointment of JFK and the lack of real movement in this window have left me bereft of any hope or belief in him or the seasons ahead.

    We will struggle as a football team as long as the players roles are constantly changing.

    Every player should have a specific role for the team, however Pardew chops and changes so much I cant actually say what each of the players is supposed to do from game to game.

    They line up as a set of individuals and then the result is based upon somebody doing something individually brilliant to gain the points. There is absolutely no pattern or structure to our game and this all lies with the manager.

    Whoever comes through the door will not change this fact and we will continue to be disjointed, fragmented and play a shite brand of football.

    The only shining light to this year is somebody (Faye Downey) has been employed that understands how important actual cardio fitness in achieving your potential in any sport. Hopefully we can press the ball a bit more rather than just encamping on our 18 yard line as a defensive tactic.

    We can have the best strikers in the world but without service they will struggle on scraps. That needs sorting in our lackluster squad.

    That’s. bit like saying that offering my old car in part ex gets the price down…it doesn’t, it just reduces the amount of cash that I have to part with, while also reducing my assets. And there’s nothing to say that Blackburn want those two players or that they would want to leave. How many deals like that take place in reality rather than in a computer game?

    I’m not saying that Rhodes won’t be good, but have you seen him play (beyond an occasional highlights reel)? I don’t exactly hear about loads of PL clubs linked to him or he’s talking up a move to a bigger club. I’ll trust our scouts on that one, and if there’s a choice between the likes of Cisse or Rhodes, then I’d pick Cisse every time.

    OK, i just got an overall look of the french websites concering Gomis, and there’s some contradictions.

    Some say Gomis do not want to sign for NUFC, some others Newcastle is his priority.

    Yeah it’s the perfect deal for us, but not for Qpr. lol

    They’re going to have to pay a chunk of his wages for a year. I think he’ll end up going to Spurs tbh.

    We desperately need strikers – not one, not two, but three (with one or two being capable of giving us real width).
    We have very little backup and no quality in depth.
    Gouffran and Cisse will hardly strike fear in the heart of opposing defences.

    If there is any truth in the rumours of us looking to pick up up the scum’s relect defenders then Joke will be living up to his name

    Ed, Remy has NOT been charged with rape and is NOT facing a rape trial (although he could be). I have written about this a few times explaining the correct procedures in the UK – well here it is again. Remy is on police bail to respond to a London cop shop in September (exact date not known – but window closes on 2nd September – it is thought he responds at the cop shop AFTER the window closes). When he returns to the cop shop anyone of the following can take place.
    1. Charged with an offence.
    2. Bailed again to allow further time for enquiries.
    3. Released no further action.
    If charged the cops could bail him to court or keep him in custody for the next available court. The court could either bail him or remand him in custody.

    He hasn’t even been charged with rape btw. He’s been bailed while they carry out further enquires.

    It’s highly unlikely that he’ll be charged in my opinion.
    Think if they had evidence they would have charged him by now like.

    Thats why the year long loan is the perfect option for us, if he’s charged then we haven’t invested million in a transfer fee, we would only lose out on a loan fee and wages, but if he’s not charged then we have first option to buy a quality striker at a very good price

    Hasn´t Remy been arrested on suspicion of rape?

    As I understand it, he hasn´t been formally charged (DPP assessing evidence) and therefore there is no trial date set.
