French Reports Newcastle Trying to Get Loic Remy On Loan


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changed his mind when he saw Yohan Cabaye sold last January for £20M to PSG and not replaced – in fact he still hasn’t been replaced by Newcastle.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.

What do you think?

    I wonder if the panic is setting in… that uneasy feeling that… hell we might just get relegated if we dont do something.

    Ahhh another non commital move by the club even if true, itd be cool if we could loan him then they can nickel and dime at the summer window, say they couldnt get him over the line, blame it on a new manager coming in… JC went out to get pies then came back, and finally not sign anybody successfully for another window..

    would be a good signing for us.

    however didn’t Charnley says he likes to look at things medium-long term, a 6 month loan therefore might not be the solution.

    I’d be ok with this if we went out and bought him or another quality forward in the summer, but history says we wont do that.

    I don’t see why this is so stupid – yes he doesn’t want a permanent move here but a loan until the end of the season would give him a chance to rebuild his reputation by scoring a few goals and put himself back in the shop window.

    sherwood ” i’m desparate but not that desperate”

    this is sherwood, who i would’t want on any shortlist in any case, but it just shows how far we’ve fallen when someone with no sort of cv to date can dismiss us out of hand.

    It does appear that way but then what’s to say, come summer, that liverpool, arsenal, spurs, barca, a better team, don’t come in and offer him a contract.

    Then what? we wait another year for Charnley to reassess everyone

    TS I agree a bird in hand is better than 2 in a bush, but comeone… we have to be a little optimistic, I mean… at the given moment we have nothing to look forward to, apart from the derby… at which its sods law that Johnson and Defo will score.

    we finally identify we need a top european coach but are now apparently holding out for mclaren who must have the most uneven and chequered cv you could ever imagine. is it really so hard to find someone who is and has been consistently good.

    Things must be really bad at the club for Tim Sherwood to turn us down. So we’re stuck with a coach who thinks pardew was as good as wor Bobby ooooooo dear

    Ferreryas aparently gone so that frees up a squad place, in all fairness… I could see the loan for loic remy as a genuine thing by Newcastle, its the type of thing we have came to expect.

    But again… why would he come here, as pinted out above, wouldnt he lose out on his medals.

    If Tim Sherwood was offered the job he would take it. It’s a bravado statement by a bloke who was / is not in the running for the job.

    From now until the end of the window we will have shite like this season t out from the PR gurus at NUFC to ensure we show that we are actually trying to bring players in. The manager debacle has been put to bed, now let’s ensure we feed the gullible masses BS so they buy/renew season tickets

    No doubt we’ll release a statement about being the 19th richest in terms of revenue generated and how this will give us the platform to build on as of next season!!! Come all….We accept all kinds of gullible geordies!!

    that’s how it came across in that bastion of truth the daily mail

    ‘This one, for me, is not something I will be interested in,’ Sherwood told talkSPORT.
    I’m desperate to get back in but I’m not desperate for anything.’

    Zero; might be a bit professional pride, perish the thought. What good is a medal if you play no part in winning it? Chelsea might also want him out to make room for another stellar signing.

    I’ve seen this story all over the net today, however if Remy did come back to the Toon he’d been in the same situation as Ben Arfa. He’s played for QPR and Chelsea this season so he’d be ineligible to play for Newcastle. The rumour is nonsense..

    I’m sure there are a number of managers out there who are consistently good.
    I think the problem with these guys is that they take one look at our dysfunctional club, and run a mile.
    How on earth our last manager coped with working in that environment, and still managed to average a top half finish in the premiership over the four years he was here, I’ll never know.
