Newcastle Given Green Light To Sign Loic Remy
With claims and counter claims as to what Newcastle had agreed regarding Loic Remy’s loan deal and what came next, it looked certain that the final outcome would have to wait until next summer.
With everything up in the air as to whether Remy stayed at QPR, moved permanently to Tyneside, or went elsewhere.
While quotes from Joe Kinnear seemed to suggest no transfer fee had been agreed if Newcastle wanted to make the deal permanent, a journalist close to the club confidentluy claimed that wasn’t the case with his inside knowledge. What did seem clear though was that QPR had retained the right as to whether they kept or sold Remy, rather than Newcastle having the right to buy him.

However, our friend ‘Arry Redknapp has turned things on their head as he has stated that he isn’t interested in taking back any of the players, including Loic Remy, who chose to go out on loan rather than stay and fight for promotion.
“Loic Remy wanted to go to Newcastle so good luck to him, I hope he does well.
He is not in my thoughts as I only wnat people who are here and want to be here, that is all I am concerned with.
Taarabt and all those who have gone on loan, I say good luck to them. I hope that they do well, they stay where they are, and get a contract there.”
Remy is looking by far our most dangerous and reliable threat up front with Cisse dropped and Hatem Ben Arfa looking as though he could be set for an up and down season.
To me it is clear that if QPR are willing to sell then Newcastle should do everything in their power to make the deal permanent in January rather than risk waiting until next summer and risk losing the striker.
