Newcastle retain Remy interest

Newcastle United are still hopeful of securing French striker Loïc Rémy on a permanent basis, according to BBC Sport.

Loic Remy

Rémy, who currently plays for Queens Park Rangers, had been due to join Liverpool in an £8.5 million deal this week, however the move failed to go through amid rumours that there had been a problem with the 27-year-old’s medical.

But Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has stated that he would welcome the opportunity to bring Rémy back to Tyneside after the striker’s successful loan spell last season.

“It's a straightforward deal if Loic and QPR decide to do business with us,” said Pardew.

The courtship of Rémy by the Magpies is a long and complicated affair. Newcastle originally thought they had captured the player during the January transfer window of 2013, having agreed a deal with his then club Olympique Marseille. However, Rémy bizarrely failed to arrive at St. James’ Park, and a few days later emerged as a QPR player.

Undeterred, Newcastle went back to the player and in the summer of 2013, and secured his services on a season-long loan following Rangers’ relegation to the Championship. Their faith was rewarded as Rémy scored 14 Premier League goals in 26 appearances.

“The results speak for themselves, the fans loved him and I think it's a great place for him personally,” said Pardew, reiterating his interest while recognising the issues involved in signing the player.

“There is a lot of baggage in the way at the moment because of what happened at Liverpool, and the fact he has a parent club in QPR. But I wouldn't say we're not interested in him, of course we would be.”
