Newcastle fans who had hoped that Loic Remy would sign a permanent deal at Newcastle in January, may be disappointed by some of his comments in the Telegraph today, as he seems to have no wish to sign on at Newcastle in January, and says he will still be a QPR player at the end of the season.
Loic Remy – 5 goals already for Newcastle
Loic has already essentially turned down Newcastle once, when he surprisingly signed with QPR in January, when they were rock bottom of the league when he signed, and stayed there until the end of the season and were relegated..
But Remy has been great for Newcastle so far this season, with five goals in just six appearances for the Tyneside club.
This is what the Frenchman had to say today:
“The question has probably not come at the right time,” “That question will have its time to be asked. The most important thing for me at the moment is playing well here at Newcastle, putting in great performances and doing well for this team.”
“Then, hopefully, trying to get a more regular position in the French squad, which is a focus for me as well.” “Afterwards, at the end of the season, I am still a QPR player.”
“I am just on loan, but we will then look at that question. I will look at whatever offers come in – whether that be from Newcastle or whether that be from QPR. Then I’ll consider what is best for me and what is best for my future career.”
It would cost Newcastle only around £8m to sign Remy, and that would be an excellent buy for the club, but that’s also why other big clubs will no doubt be interested in him this summer.
