Striker – Newcastle Would Offer Me A Great Career

When a player goes out on loan for a season, it is the usual case that a buy clause is inserted into the contract, that allows the club to buy the player at the end of the season for a stated transfer fee.

And for Loic Remy in the summer, who Newcastle had agreed a fee of  £8M with Marseilles in January,  before he jumped ship and decided to sign for QPR instead, you would have thought that Newcastle would be even more keen to get that clause inserted into his one year loan contract.

But the Mirror today is reporting that’s not the case, and that QPR have now increased his price by £2M, and he’s now available for £10M.

We’d be very surprised if that’s the case, and it would be a strange move by the London club if this is true.

On the other hand Remy says he knew a career at Newcastle would be great (so why did he choose QPR in January?) and he had this to say in the Mirror:

“I was happy with the choice I made. I believed Newcastle was a great club and it would have offered me a great career,  but for personal reasons (money?) I decided to go to QPR.”

“But it was disappointing because we suffered relegation. Now I am really happy to be here at Newcastle.”

The transfer season is upon us again in just over two months so we suppose you would expect news on Remy, who is not expected to sign any long term deal at Newcastle, or for any other club in January, but wait until the summer before deciding on where his future lies.

At that time, if he continues to score goals for Newcastle,  there will  be bigger clubs than Newcastle after him in the summer.

What do you think?

    Anything could happen today. We could win 4-0 (simply because they have been so bad), yet we could also lose 2-1 because Poyet may have organised a few things this week.

    Without having a basis of teamplay we know that Remy, Ben Arfa and Cabaye can score out of nothing, so there is always hope however we play. As is usually the case with our team.

    If we created a lot of good chances then I’d be more confident, but I’m always worried that if our wonder goals dry up, we are usually left with nothing and less that 3 points.

    There is a simple solution to this !

    Remy says he went to QPR for personel reasons? What is that supposed to mean !

    So if he wants a Great carreer at Newcastle, let Newcastle pay the original 6 mil release clause and let the player anything more which QPR try to charge us extra, the Remy will think twice about any future personal reasons he may wish to think up !

    Do both QPR and Remy think we are f………….ing stupid or summit?

    Dunno where you get the £6m ‘release clause’ fee from? Could you be working on the premis that his fee’s £8m less £2m loan fee?

    I’d go another way that might explain the Mirror’s £10m in that we know that his loan fee is £2m (£8m fee paid by QPR over four years represents £2m for a season loan) and add yo that a pre-agreed release fee of £8m, and would you believe it, we have the Mirror’s £10m.
