It would be a good deal for Newcastle to try to get Loic Remy back on loan at Newcastle this month, but why would he ever want to come back to Newcastle – especially when we don’t have a head coach at the club – probably until the summer.
Loic Remy – when at Newcastle last season
There are reports in France (and all over the web) that caretaker manager John Carver is keen to bring Loic Remy to Newcastle, but it was just last week that he said he hadn’t even thought about transfers – and had been too busy preparing the side for games – but of course we have lost the last three games nd don;y play this weekend because one of those losses was at Leicester City in the FA Cup.
It’s true that Loic is not getting too many games at Chelsea this season, and it doesn’t look like Jose Mourinho rates him too highly with the experienced Didier Drogba usually favored as the second striker to the great Diego Costa – who has been sensational for Chelsea this season – we guess Jose knows a good player when he sees one.
The 28 year-old French striker refused to sign for Newcastle last summer, although we were very keen on signing him after he had scored 14 goals for us in 27 appearances last season and he looked great.
And with Facundo Ferreyra’s loan spell being ended this month, it will open up a slot in the 25 man Premier League roster at Newcastle.
But if Loic had been thinking of signing for Newcastle then he must have changed his mind when he saw Yohan Cabaye sold last January for £20M to PSG and not replaced – in fact he still hasn’t been replaced by Newcastle.
That not only had a negative impact on the squad a year ago, and was one reason we started to slump in the league, but that move has shown that Newcastle was not the ambitious club Loic Remy was looking for,
We’ve seen nothing in the last twelve months that would help Loic change his mind on that – and it could also impact who we can get in to replace departed manager Alan Pardew, who left rather quickly several weeks ago when an opportunity opened up at Crystal Palace.
We cannot see Loic Remy ever returning to Newcastle and in any case – as some readers have immediately pointed out in the comments – he has already played two games for QPR and 15 times for Chelsea – so he couldn’t play for Newcastle.
As we found out with Ben Arfa’s potential move to Nice, a player can only play for two clubs in a season – end of story.
