Loic_Remy_01Today, 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.

Labrune;

“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”. 

Earlier ‘Le 10 Sport‘ reported that they’d been in touch with Marseille and so could reveal the following

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. At the time of this writing, the two clubs are still expecting the definitive ‘yes’ from Loïc Rémy – the only thing stopping the French striker getting on the plane to join the Magpies.

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’.

Jonas, Anita and Janmaat by far the 3 best players today, but Sissoko a 7.1 score ? he may have score but for most of the game he give the ball away, his close control is abysmal. We got the win we needed but next season is gonna be a worry, need at least 8 or 9 new players including at least 4 or 5 proven quality......................100mil+ and over to you Ashley

I've always had a soft spot and stuck up for Anita and today he finally showed what he's capable of (I'll ignore the gaff with the 4 on 1 chance) while Jonas will rightly get all the plaudits I thought Big Vern ran him a close second

You are spot on but if you analyse his game, wasn't he just first to every loose ball and tidy with his passing? Do we not expect that anyway. Not knocking him. I think he's a great player, in the right position, like today.

Jonas should be rewarded with another season at the club.

I think that was the best performance I've seen from Anita for a very long time.

I've criticised Carver for picking Jonas this season but he's showed the last few games he's still got it but maybe not a first choice player. Due to his age and salary the club probably won't offer him a new contract but it would be good if they could agree a pay as you play deal

I'd like to know how much ground Jonas and Anita covered between them. Anita seemed to be everywhere and Jonas just never stopped running.
