Maybe the very best chance we have of surviving this season – even though we are in a very serious and dangerous position at the moment 3 points from safety and with a propensity to lose games – is to sign striker Loic Remy on loan.
And although he has turned us down twice before on a possible permanent deal – we still think he would be welcomed with open arms by Newcastle fans because he’s a very good player and he could definitely score some goals for us in the remaining very crucial 15 games of the season.
Moussa Sissoko – in action at Watford
Just how Newcastle have managed to get themselves into this position after spending £70M in the transfer market since the end of last season is beyond us – but I digress as the word incompetence suddenly comes to mind.
The Sun is reporting today that Newcastle’s French International midfielder Moussa Sissoko has told Chelsea striker Loic Remy he should come back to Newcastle this month and help us out.
There was news today that Crystal Palace have cooled their interest in Remy, so that could leave the way open for Newcastle to sign him.
And only yesterday Moussa said there was little chance of him leaving Newcastle this month and that he planned to stay and fight to keep Newcastle in the Premier League.
Of course moving to another club – like Naples for instance – could hamper his chances of being in the French squad for the 2016 Euros this year – so it’s also in his own best interests to stay on Tyneside at the moment.
So there’s two ways he’s trying to help Newcastle survive.
Loic Remy did great for us while on loan a couple of years ago and scored 14 goals in 26 Premier League games and he looked a very good striker.
And moving to Newcastle could help him get into the French squad for the Euro 2016 finals, simply because Newcastle is probably the highest profile Premier League club in France.
The good form and goals he could get for us would be reported widely back in his home country and that could help him make the French squad.
So it seems it could be a win-win for both the player and Newcastle if Loic could come on loan.
