This morning brings claims that a Loic Remy transfer to Newcastle United from Chelsea could be on the cards.

So the story goes, the blues forward is unhappy with life on the bench at Stamford Bridge and so is desperate for regular football.

loic remyRemy has only started one Premier League match since his move but has been used as a semi-regular substitute, one of his eight shifts off the bench was in the recent 2-0 defeat of Newcastle.

While the chance of Champions League football was said to be a major draw for Loic Remy, he has only enjoyed 51 minutes of that so far and is unlikely to see much more than that unless Costa and Drogba pick up injuries.

However, just because he fancies more football is unlikely to equal a return to Newcastle.

The Star have ran the story and claimed their info is from several sources/sauces in France. Our French translator has scoured the media on the other side of the Channel and there is absolutely no mention of any Remy/Newcastle link…

The newspaper claims that John Carver is pushing for the deal which lends itself another layer of disbelief, as I don’t think any Newcastle fans will believe that the caretaker boss has any say on transfer, even if he got the job permanently.

Like a lot of these stories about the return of Cabaye, Carroll, Ba, Remy or whoever – the issue they all fail to address is the ridiculous notion that Mike Ashley would go anywhere near matching the wages these players have at their current clubs, the major factor for most/all as to why they left in the first place.

***Thanks to Mag reader Nick who has just pointed out how even more laughable the Star’s claims/sauces are, Loic Remy has also played for QPR this season so can’t play for anybody else this season as he’s already played for two clubs. The position Hatem Ben Arfa is in at the moment with an Under 21 NUFC match currently being counted as a competitive match.

    Could be smoke without fire but it sounds a feasible option as Chelsea have played Newcastle twice and we still have to play all the other premiership winner contenders i.e. Arsenal, Man Utd and Man City, and the introduction of Remy to our front line would work not only for Newcastle but more specifically for Chelsea. Simples.

    Apart from Remy already played for QPR and Chelsea this season and will be unable to play for a third club.

    vbhgft Billy Goat  that info regarding two clubs in the article wasn’t written before my comment,*** but added afterwards so obviously the writer didn’t know either till it was pointed out to him. Simple.
