Redknapp expecting Remy to face Hull City.
Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp is hopeful that striker Loic Remy will be available to face Hull City next weekend, report the Mail, despite a summer of transfer speculation surrounding the French international.
Remy saw a potential move to Liverpool collapse earlier this month, potentially due to a problem with the player’s medical at Anfield, but his current manager has praised the player’s application after returning to training with Rangers:
“He’s worked really hard on the training ground, I couldn’t have asked for any more from him. He’s trained great and his attitude’s been first class.”
“Hopefully with a week’s training he’ll be fit to play next week.”
Remy’s availability to face the Tigers next weekend would be a huge boost for Redknapp, who is struggling for strikers with only last season’s top scorer, Charlie Austin, and Bobby Zamora – the experienced former Fulham man who clinched promotion with the winning goal in the play-off final – currently on the books.
Whether Redknapp is able to bring in another experienced striker or not may depends on Remy’s future, with other Premier League clubs having been strongly linked with a move for the French international.
As things stand, however, he is a QPR player – and fans will be hoping that he does take the pitch for their opening fixture.
