Newcastle would simply love to sign on-loan striker Loic Remy in January on a permanent basis, and the Newcastle striker has scored five goals in his first six games for the Magpies, and fitted so well into Newcastle’s line-up.
Loic Remy – take a lesson from Demba Ba
But the irony of all this is that the better Loic does in Newcastle’s colors, the less chance that he will sign for us in January, and the more chance he will hold out for a bigger club, and could even hold out until after the World Cup in Brazil next summer.
Alan Pardew and the Newcastle club have handled the striker quite brilliantly both on and off the field since he arrived in August, and as the Newcastle manager says, there’s a chance he will sign for us permanently simply because he has been treated so well on Tyneside.
The other positive in all of this is that Loic did the dirty on us in January, and maybe he will not hold out this time, and hopefully he will sign for Newcastle in January, and if he does that he will become more of a darling with Newcastle fans than he already is.
Of course there is uncertainty about Loic’s future until he goes on trial for a pending rape charge, and that will happen late next month.
Demba Ba – while at Newcastle
And an example Loic could look to is that of Demba Ba, who had a fantastic eighteen months at Newcastle when he scored 29 goals in just 58 appearances before leaving us for Chelsea for £7M in early January.
The Senegal striker’s career has gone into limbo, and he finds it difficult even to get on the bench these days at the London side.
A move to a bigger club isn’t always the best move for your career.
