Loic Remy, QPR to Newcastle
The French striker snubbed a move to Tyneside last January in favour of a move to London with QPR, but the Hoops were eventually relegated to the Championship, putting his future at the club in doubt. A reported £2million loan fee is being demanded by QPR, as their star man failed to feature in their opening fixture of the season against Sheffield Wednesday. The Express claim that a deal will be announced in the next 48 hours, after club Director of Football Joe Kinnear revealed that the Toon ‘are very, very close’ to agreeing a deal with QPR. Looking for a striker partner for Papiss Cisse, Loic Remy’s entrance at the Sports Direct Arena will hopefully propel Newcastle in the right direction this season.
