More positive news today that Newcastle’s pursuit of Loic Remy may even be successful, as the club move to secure the striker’s services on loan through the end of the season.
There are conflicting reports about whether Chelsea will allow Loic to leave on loan this month, but the player himself will want to do that to get regular playing time so he has a chance of making the French squad for the Euro 2016 Championships in June.
Loic Remy while on loan at Newcastle
And since Loic Remy is low on the striker totem pole at Stamford Bridg, it would be a surprise if he wasn’t allowed to move on loan by new manager Guus Hiddink.
Loic had a very good loan spell at Newcastle for the 2013-2014 season and scored 14 Premier League goals in 26 league appearances for us.
That’s exactly the type of goal scoring we need if we are to survive in the Premier League this season.
Loic knows he would be an automatic starter at Newcastle and he would be well accepted by the Newcastle fans – even though he wouldn’t sign for us full time 18 months ago.
If Loic comes in and scores goals for us this season and helps save us from relegation, he will again be a hero on Tyneside and maybe he would even agree to sign for us full time in the summer?
His experiences with a bigger club like Chelsea have not been particularly good.
We think Loic would be perfect for Newcastle this season – if only we can get him in on loan.
