Loic Remy Could Be Set For QPR Stay Due to Lack of Interest In French Forward

Striker could be forced to remain in Championship after little interest shown by other clubs.

Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

QPR’s Loic Remy could be forced to play Championship football next season after it was revealed the London club are struggling to find potential suitors for the striker according to the London Evening Standard.

Remy joined the club from Marseille for £8 million during the previous January transfer window. He showed glimpses of his ability but also struggled with injuries and he was unable to prevent his side from suffering relegation from the Premier League.

The likes of Arsenal, Newcastle and Tottenham have been linked with his services in recent months but it now appears that all three have gone cold on the idea.

Remy has a £6.8 million minimum fee release clause in his contract which would allow him to be signed with minimum hassle but it seems even that is failing to entice any Premier League clubs into making a bid.

One factor in the lack of interest may be the criminal proceedings currently being brought against Remy. He was accused of rape in May but has been granted bail until Septemeber. Remy denies the allegation.

The player himself is keen to move away from QPR as he believes the Championship to be below his level but he may not have much choice if there continues to be a lack of interest in his signature.
