It certainly seems as though both club and player are preparing for the striker to leave this summer, with Newcastle desperate to add another striker it could well be one to keep an eye on. As one of only two forwards to outscore Yoan Gouffran in France in the 18 months before Gouffran joined Newcastle, he could be a great buy.
Interesting to see whether NUFC see it as a priority and/or worthwhile exercise to try and keep any kind of significant English element to the squad, especially when there is every chance that the likes of first team/bench Simpson, Harper and Williamson might not play any part at St.James’ Park after this season.
Alan Pardew; “They are pretty difficult to get over the line. You look around and nobody apart from Remy has really moved – maybe Danny Graham but I don’t think he’s in that level. I think that’s something we will look at in the summer”.
