It’s hardly new news, but the Mirror is reporting today that Newcastle will attempt to sign top striker Loic Remy in January, before his season long loan deal is up, and one reason for that is to try to keep other clubs from signing him in the summer.
Loic Remy – will he join Newcastle
Newcastle are paying a £2M loan fee for the player, but that will all go towards his fee of £8M, so he would now cost Newcastle just another £6M in January, and that would be a real bargain.
The news is that Newcastle will also try to bring in another striker in January, although we think the defense is still the big weakness in the team.
There’s a good possibility that Remy and his advisors will not sign in January, but wait until the summer when other clubs could come in for him, and other clubs, like Tottenham as one example, could even come in for him in January, and maybe Arsenal too, who are said to want to sign a striker in a couple of months..
As we reported yesterday, Remy could for the second time move to another club, rather than join Newcastle, which is what he did last January when he joined QPR.
