Newcastle look set to end their search for new players after agreeing terms on the transfers of French stars Bafetimbi Gomis and Loic Remy, reports The
The Geordies are presently the only Premier League club yet to add to their squad during the summer transfer window, but look set to change that now that they have agreed a fee for the permanent transfer of Gomis and the initial one-year loan of QPR hitman Remy.
The Gomis deal is expected to cost the North East outfit in the region of £7m, with £1.6m added on based on performance. A medical is still to be conducted, and agent’s fees agreed, but assuming all goes well with those he will sign a deal thought to be worth in the region of £45k per week at St. James’ Park sometime within the next 48 hours.
Remy, meanwhile, will move to the Magpies for a loan fee of £1.8m with the potential for a £7m permanent deal next summer should the move prove a success.
Jean-Michel Aulas, president of Lyon (Gomis’ current club) confirmed the terms of the deal, stating: “We have accepted Newcastle’s proposal, which is 8m euros, plus a 2m bonus.
“The agreement is linked to the acceptance of agents’ fees. The problem is in the amount and manner of payment of commissions. There are several people involved in the operation, which does complicate negotiations. But I am hopeful it will be resolved within 24 or 48 hours.”
