Loftus Road forward completes temporary move to St James’ Park.
Newcastle United have finally got their first signing of the window over the line after Queens Park Rangers forward Loic Remy passed his medical today and has now signed on a season long loan.
The 26 year-old, who previously snubbed the club in January for money, told the club’s official website he is “very happy to be a Newcastle player.”
Remy went on to add, “it will be a huge honour to play for such a big club. I was very flattered by the Club’s interest in me back in January and also very happy that they showed interest in me again this summer.”
“The Premier League is the best league in the world and that’s where I want to play. I am very motivated this year to get into the World Cup squad for my country. I know in order to do that I need to have a big season and a successful campaign with Newcastle United.”
“I am focussed on helping the team achieve success this season and scoring as many goals as I can.”
The French international managed six goals during his sixth month spell with the Hoops last season, before they were relegated to the Championship, causing an overhaul in the way the club was run.
Players have been sold, released and loaned out whilst new faces have been brought in by R’s boss Harry Redknapp in a desperate attempt to build for a promotion push this season. QPR got off to a winning start in their first game of the season as they beat Sheffield Wednesday 2-1 at Loftus Road.
