Redknapp prepared for Remy departure

Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp has accepted that he is unlikely to see striker Loic Remy back at the club once his loan spell ends, according to Sky Sports.

The France international has spent the season on-loan at Newcastle after QPR were relegated to the Championship last season and has been impressive, scoring 13 goals for the Magpies.

Redknapp has come to understand that Remy will likely be sold in the summer, regardless of QPR gaining promotion to the Premier League.

"Remy wants to play Champions League football next season, so they tell me.

"The chances of us keeping him are not great if he's got a buy-out clause.

"He's done well at Newcastle, and one or two other big clubs are trying to get him, so there's every chance he will go.

Despite his likely departure from the club, Redknapp spoke of his disappointment to lose a striker of his calibre after admitting to chasing his signature in the past.

The 27-year-old has a £10 million release cause in his current contract and he will be looking to secure Champions League football for himself next season.

"I chased him at Tottenham, and I knew he would do well.

"He's a scorer, and with the right team pushing to get in the top four, he's capable of getting 20 goals.

"If I say he's worth £20m and his buy-out clause is £10m, or whatever, then it's difficult."
