Today, Vincent Labrune, President of OM, told RMC Sport that Newcastle and Marseille had agreed to transfer Loic Remy. The French striker now needs to agree personal terms.
“We have an agreement in principle with Newcastle, it is true, said Labrune. We have therefore given permission for Loïc to discuss personal terms with them”.

Olympique de Marseille and Newcastle have indeed agreed a transfer for Loic Remy with the Magpies. According to le 10 sport, the agreement, which took place during the night, would be worth around 12 million euros. This transfer seems well under way.

Thanks to Pierre once again for all of the invaluable translation.
Finally, Remy’s teammate Joey Barton also put his oar in on Twitter;
‘Good luck to Loic in Newcastle, don’t worry I’ve told him what to expect. Great guy, perfect club for him’.
