There´s news today that Newcastle have been offered an opportunity of signing former striker Loic Remy on loan from Chelsea.
The news is in the Chronicle and it´s that Chelsea have made Loic available to the Magpies, but we also know that Alan Pardew and Crystal Palace are after him.

Since he signed for Chelsea 18 months ago Loic has never been a starter at Stamford Bridge and does not get much playing time.
But he wants first team football to try to make the French squad for the Euro 2106 Championships in France in June.
Maybe the Chronicle has some inside information about this since Guus Hiddink recently said this about the French striker:
“He is our player, we are not going into that.” ‘We need all our players until the end of the season.”
“You know as much as I do, Chelsea is still in a position where they have to improve a lot to go up the table; we need all the players for this moment.”
”We don’t go into rumors.”
Well, Guus doesn´t exactly flat our deny Loic could go out on loan this month.
The problem we have with this news is that Yohan Cabaye is at Crystal Palace just down the road from Stamford Bridge.
And it must be enticing for Loic to move to Palace and play under Alan Pardew again – and maybe even set up a permanent deal in the summer and sign on at Palace permanently.
However, Loic could do a job for us at Newcastle right now, and getting him on Tyneside on loan could even be the difference between staying up or being relegated.
Loic could surely get us some goals that we are severely lacking at the moment.
The 31 times capped French Intentional was on loan at Newcastle the season before last and scored 14 goals in 26 Premier League appearances for us.
Loic turned 29 on Saturday.
