Reports That Newcastle Agree Loan Deal For Loic Remy


News on the French site le10sport.com this afternoon is that Newcastle have agreed a loan deal for Loic Remy of QPR, and if that is true it would be very good news for Newcastle, but the French web-site is also reporting that other clubs, such as Naples and Tottenham are also interested in taking Remy.

Loic Remy of Marseille has attracted interest from Newcastle United

Loic Remy – loan deal agreed with Newcastle

The news is that Newcastle have agreed loan terms with QPR, even though manager Harry Redknapp said  yesterday he didn’t think Remy would go out on loan, and Newcastle have first option to buy the 26 year-old next summer – if the deal goes through.

This is some of the report in le10sport this afternoon:

“Although initially there was talk between the two clubs a transfer of around 11 million euros, the amount of the release clause of the French striker, the agreement has been finalized on the basis of a loan.”

“Tottenham, Everton and Naples are still interested in Remy,  so the deal is not yet concluded, and indeed, other clubs are likely to move in for the striker in the coming days.”

“Remy may wait a few days to see if any of those three clubs actually move for him, before deciding in favor of Newcastle .”

What that’s basically saying is Remy will wait to see if another club comes in with a better offer than Newcastle, and even if he signs on the loan deal and does well at Newcastle, other clubs could still come after him for a permanent deal next summer.

It sounds to us like deja vu all over again. 🙁

And of course QPR would still like a permanent deal for their player this summer, so maybe one of Naples, Tottenham or Everton will come in and pay the €8M release clause in his contract and we suppose Newcastle’s deal would then be scuppered.

And Naples have big money after selling Edinson Cavani to PSG for £60M, and Tottenham could have big money if they sell Gareth Bale for £105M to Real Madrid.

So while there has been really good news on both Gomis and Remy today the deals are not done, and other clubs could still move in.

Here’s hoping they don’t.

    Responding to someone who said we’re short on RB, I would really like to see Mbabu with some cameo appearances this year. He’s dubbed the Swiss wonderkid. Remember him?

    @ Pawl

    I agree on M’biwa. Looked shaky at times last season but was thrown in at the deep end in the PL. Hope to see some of his bursts out from defense this season, he carries the ball brilliantly.

    I honestly think this is the best back line on paper we have ever had since I have followed NUFC.

    Hope we get him as well as Gomis like. Gives us the option of 4-3-3 as well.

    Cisse-Gomis-Remy-Gouffran

    That is a very strong strike-force if we can pull it off. No more relying on Shola to save the day. I imagine we would sell Ameobi if Remy comes as well.

    Does anyone know how reliable LeSport is? We might have a very tasty forward line come the start of the season with Gomis, Cisse and Remy with the likes of HBA and Cabaye and Sissoko in Midfield. Not to mention Tiote and Anita and also Marveaux who is under used. These two potential signings will make the team a lot stronger. Fingers crossed.

    pawl/ bpc — ref Mbiwa – I agree that he is a good player -but I still think we need that tall CB in defence -who can also pose a threat from corners – as at present the likes of Saylor and Colo are useless upfield and regardless of what has been preached from the club for me the fact that Colo contemplated going back to South America casts a doubt as to his reliabilty in the medium term.

    Just be careful about reading too much into this one. No other sources saying the same yet, and we all know just how slippery Loic Remy has been before.

    Is someone near benton? Rumoured 3 medicals, who slipped under the radar?

    As for Carr – Douglas was on a list – near the bottom he only came to the fore because deadly dekka spotted a bargain instead or quality. Lallana shows he’s human, time will tell on his recommendations.

    do I assume that Kinnear is our back-up keeper, centre half, right back, right winger and left winger, so thats why we have been so quite in the transfer window, we only 6 players when he have Joe playing the other 5 by himself lol

    I decide to switch the order of my name. Being called Arizona is kinda funny.

    Anyway, this year is kinda upbeating when we don’t need to play for Europa.
