Newcastle Closing In On Deal For French Striker


According to RMC in France, Newcastle are in active negotiations to tie up a six month loan deal for Loic Remy, but former Newcastle manager Alan Pardew is also thought to be interested in taking the French International to Crystal Palace on loan.

Loic has already showed on a season long loan from 2013-2014 that he can score goals for Newcastle – with 14 Premier League goals in 26 league appearances for the Magpies.

Loic Remy – while on loan at Newcastle

However, the worrying news is that the 29 year-old has asked for a week to consider the move – and that may be a ploy to allow Alan Pardew time to move in and sign the striker on loan for Palace.

Loic has never been able to break into the first team at Chelsea since he signed for them in the summer of 2014 after failing a medical in Boston for Liverpool.

Remy is very keen to get regular playing time so he has a chance of making the French squad for the Euro 2016 Championships in June.

But it could be a huge blow to the Magpies if Loic chooses Palace over Newcastle.

How low can you go?

That would be similar to the striker choosing QPR three years ago when the London club were bottom of the league and after a verbal agreement had been made that he would sign permanently for Newcastle in an £8M deal.

QPR were relegated in 20th place that season and then Newcastle took Loic on loan for the next season, but at the end of that season we couldn’t persuade him to sign for us.

We still hope Newcastle can get Loic in on loan – he could literally save us with his goals.

Hopefully, Newcastle have made a good offer for the French International.

Comments welcome.

    I think you’ll find Mc will be told to play Darlow, Lascelles Mbabu De Jong, Gouffy & Thauvin even Toney against Watford to rest other 1st Team Players & save them for Man U. Why would we try to win FA Cup this year when weakened squad has been selected in previous years.
    It’s Club policy for season to be over in January

    i actually can see this happening.
    Not because:
    Ashley has the best interest in the club in mind
    Charmless knows wtf hes doing

    but because:
    its the cheapest, make shift temporary option to keep the boat afloat

    Sky Bet have already produced a market on Rafa Benitez’s next managerial position, with Newcastle the shortest Premier League club at 16/1. The Spanish national side is 4/1 favourite, with one of his former clubs – Valencia, currently being managed by Gary Neville, at 6/1.

    At long last the Toon has achieved consistency under Mike Ashley. We lose a lot. 9 in a row to the gooners. I am now hoping that we have continuity and Schteeve is given an 8 year contract like Pardew. All is well in the Toon camp.

    Don’t let Remy string us along. Make him an offer & then move on because there’s less than 4 weeks left of this window. It’ll all be last minute dealing when WE need players in & then out NOW.
    I know everyone is speculating but we all know in our heart of hearts that it’s loan deals at best. Austin & Carroll are too risky injury wise & what about Full back cover only 2 fit plus Mbabu. Need a quality CB but we won’t get one with Sicknote Saylor, Willo the Weak & Untested Lascelles in the ranks behind Mbemba & Colo

    Sixteen to one sounds pretty short doesn’t it?
    But imagine being shown seventeen paper cups and told to find the ball in one go or you are dead…..
    Now by comparison, our relegation odds are like being shown three paper cups and given two goes.

    Hope we are both proved wrong Lindisfarne but I think that team or one very similar will be the one.
    So much for Mr Cashley wanting to win something.
    He can always try to win the championship next season

    Remy is a footballer who was offered a good wage at a dodgy club vs a less good wage at a dodgy club all with the aim of showcasing his skills and getting to a good club

    Think all the players we sign come because they love the quayside?

    Sorry WWSBRD I have morals & wouldn’t entertain him even if it mean’t us being relegated. Shouldn’t come to that because if we can’t finish above Mackems Villa, Swans ,Canaries & Bournemouth we don’t deserve to stay up.

    Why is that other clubs sign their players straight away, ours either take ages or the player spends a pissing week to decide.

    OK but he’s not good enough to play for Chelski . This season proves you need team players who work for each other close down & chase in packs. Then somebody who knows where the net is like Vardy & his mate Mahrez at Leicester, Deeney & Igalo at Watford.If we bring anyone in they must ht the ground running from Day One. Bournemouth too have no stars but they never give up. That’s the mentality needed for a relegation battle. & if that happens at NUFC and they battle every week & still go down then so be it.

    One reason we might land Remy is Chelsea’s insistence not to allow him to go to a club above them in the Premiership such as Crystal Palace. It is well known Remy prefers the capital but his current club would much prefer him to come to us. This would be good business especially the way our league position is making any transfers such as Austin a much higher price now than in the Summer. If we dodge relegation later, Newcastle will look a much more attractive proposition in June and we are more likely to get our targets, and acquire them at a lower price. So let’s hope we can get Remy and Debuchy on loan till Summer.

    Ant-man may be back in time to make an appearance. I can not see that side accidentally getting through to the next round, plus any replacement players used by Watford will be trying to impress the manager and get into the first team. Rather than cement a move to another club.

    A week for Remy to make a decision? It will take Mash three weeks to ponder whether to risk a gamble on us staying up by not strengthening.

    Also Welsh why wouldn’t Pardew want both?

    Zaha, Austin, Remy

    Cracking attacking force and with Cabaye behind them you could see a different Palace even better than they are now.

    Spot on Welsh.
    It’s because we show our cards put it all over the media & press. Price goes up & we lose out. We lost Bony & Gomis to Swans, Alderwield (on loan)&Van Dyk to Soton & which Ayew was it we were after Swans player of Villa,? Shactiri went to Stoke. And the list goes on. All bigger clubs than us then
