It may be a small chance, but we think there is a chance that Loic Remy could sign for Newcastle as soon as next month, and from what the Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has said today, he has hopes of signing the French International striker.
Loic Remy – has been great for Newcastle
Certainly Loic has fitted in quickly and well at Newcastle this season, and of course it will have helped that we have so many French players currently in the squad.
And it says a lot about Newcastle, that we went back in for him in the summer, after Loic had turned us down at the last moment last January and joined QPR for more money, and it certainly wasn’t to play in front of 17,000 at Loftus Road, that’s for sure.
Alan Pardew was talking on Absolute Radio about Loic Remy today:
“He has been terrific – he’s a lovely young boy.” “I think he has got great technical ability, and he’s going to have a great career in the Premier League – and hopefully with us.”
“We feel we can sign him – we have the finance to do that – but of course probably at the end of the year, Loic and his agent and his representatives will decide where his future is.”
“50,000 Geordies – there isn’t a lot of clubs who can beat that. That’s what I say to my players. “They think the grass is greener, and we’ve lost some good players in this football club.”
“Joey Barton moved on, Andy Carroll … and actually you have to argue, have they moved on to better clubs? “Because when they were here they were absolutely terrific for us, and I think sometimes the grass isn’t always greener, as we know.”
The facts are that very few players who have left Newcastle are better off now than they were while at Newcastle, and they include Demba Ba, Andy Carroll, Joey Barton, Kevin Nolan and Danny Guthrie, among others.
Hopefully Loic will see all the positives he has at Newcastle, including being a very popular player with the best fans in the land, and that Newcastle held no hard feeling after he broke his word to join Newcastle last January.
If he signs for Newcastle he can have a terrific career at St. James’ Park – there’s not much doubt about that.
