Newcastle Now Odds-On To Sign Loic Remy


Newcastle’s odds of signing Loic Remy in this summer transfer window have today been cut from 4/1 to 1/2 odds on.

Loic Remy – Newcastle odds on to sign the Frenchman

Sky Sports is reporting that since Newcastle have now pulled out of their efforts to sign Bafetimbi Gomis of Lyon, because the price was far too high for a player who is available as a free agent next June, Newcastle have turned their full attentions to Loic Remy.

And the odds have been cut dramatically on a striker who Newcastle thought they were going to sign in January, but at the last moment the French International signed for QPR for £75K/week – obviously a huge mistake by the Frenchman.

And the question we posed earlier today was whether Newcastle would now try to sign Remy on a full-time basis, but we still think a loan deal is probably still best for the Tyneside club.

But of course we’ve been wrong before. 😀

Here’s the current betting on which club will sign Loic Remy this summer, with Newcastle at 1-2 on,  Tottenham next at 4-1, with West Ham next at 6-1.

Quite honestly,  we just hope that Joe Kinnear can get Remy or Gomis through the door very soon, so at least we have one new striker into the club at least.

And news today that former Newcastle manager Chris Hughton has just signed English striker Gary Hooper from Celtic for £5M.

And that follows their capture of Sporting Lisbon striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel in April for £8.5M, and Gary is now the seventh signing by Chris for Norwich this summer.

Sort note to Joe Kinnear – please get a move on – we only need two players – two strikers this summer.

    Great…. when this exact same story was posted about gomis, two stories later and the deal looked doomed, and then today it died. Guess thats remy staying at QPR 😀

    We might get Remy on loan but only if QPR pay half his wages. Penny pinching again.

    No we don’t ‘only need 2 players – two strikers’ we need 3 MINIMUM.
    2 strikers and 1 winger, or 1 striker and 2 wingers (actual out and out wingers) I do not count Obertan as a player anymore nor Jonas as a winger, merely a midfield stand in.

    How can it be so hard to get 3 players in? Nacer Chadli went to Spurs for 7 mil, he would have sorted out our right attacking side easily!

    I’m with Tommyy.

    We need more than just 2 strikers. I think realistically we’ll only get one now anyways.

    I’d love to see Sinclair here. He’s wasting his career at Man City.

    You can’t sign players on loan once the window closes mate, when it closes that’s it!

    I’d even be tempted to try and bring in Beasejour from Wigan. Quick and decent brain on him for left side, and cheap.

    I think we need:

    Cf. Winger/second striker. Winger out and out. Cb to replace willo who is not good enough.

    4 players. Ideally add to that a young rb back up and that would do me. Will it happen. No.

    Are you sure about that. Isn’t there another period where you can loan players?

    I have taken on board some of your points.
    However, it’s really sad Ashley has made it so hard to attract top people to NUFC a club with 52000 home fans!

    Ed.

    Did you not see Pardews post match interview after playing Blackpool on Sky Sports, where he let is slip that Joes directive is to bring one player over the line?

    He did later in the interview state one or two players when he realised he had dropped the clanger however for those watching it was obvious as he backed off the statement with we have a very strong squad.

    We will sign one senior player this window, however I’m not confident that Remy will want to put up with another relegation fight.

    With Pardews odds being 2-1 as first Premier League Manager to be sacked it’s not looking good especially if JFK is the answer.

    A better option than Remy would be to get Lukaku, Victor Moses or even Demba Ba on loan from Chelsea.

    At least we would then have cover up front and some creativity which is worryingly still lacking.

    Won’t happen.

    If we had a DoF capable of bringing in players, would anyone be happy with Ruiz?

    If fulham sign Bent, it could open up the doors for Ruiz to leave, I reckon he would make a good 2nd/3rd Choice Striker. A definite improvement on our oh so prolific Strolla.

    Nico, think you can get an ’emergency loan’ in extreme circumstances. Takes a lot of long term injuries in the same position to get one though. Can’t remember the last one

    More of the same! We end an interest in 1striker so the obvious headline is that we are focusing on our other know striker target. Nothing new to report. God these transfers drag on and on. Come on Kinnear do your job.

    The BIG problem most billionaires buy football clubs because they love the sport or want a interesting hobby.
    Once they have bought the club they usually have a great ambition for it and speak out. But I don’t know why MA bought Newcastle apart for advertising and selling his sports gear.
    The fans don’t mean jack sh.t to him and he’s gambling with our future just to get his money back.

    do you’s honestly think Harry will let him go on loan,, ffs fickle fans these days, don’t listen to any BS coming from papers and sites, we got to face the facts that history is repeating itself again and again, just think it’s been just under 2 months and no 1 has came through to improve our squad and by the end of August when the transfer market closes there sill be no signing

    Imo ruiz is about the same as gervinho. I think we dodged another bullet when we failed with an alleged last stitch bid for him. But thats just me. Could easily be proved wrong.

    tads,

    You’d think something could be organised through premier league the Remy scenario falls into the exceptional category, timing wise that is. I think it’s only a few days after window closes he reports to the Feds. We could have him on loan and if bail is extended or court date given we still have him on loan. If case is dropped a prearranged permanent contract could activate and he moves to us, qpr get their money and everyones happy. contracts are made on ifs and buts all the time.

    Note to ed, we need at least three players, the 3rd being a winger who can get to the by line, cross and has pace.

    Hope we get him like. If we go in to the season with Cisse, Gouffran & Shola I will kick right off.

    I honestly reckon at the minute the Mackems have a better frontline than us with Fletcher, Altidore and Wickham.

    Fair enough. But both would still improve the team, if it meant we did not have to worry about Pardew picking Shola.
