Newcastle want Loic Remy back at St. James’ Park.
The Geordie club is ready to sign again the French striker on loan, after his positive spell during 2013-2014 season with them.
Remy scored 14 goals in 26 games: he impressed Chelsea and José Mourinho so much then they eventually signed him the following summer with a permanent deal from QPR, that was his parent club in that moment.
The forward seemed on his way to Crystal Palace, where his former boss Alan Pardew was pushing to sign him, but then the interest of Eagles cooled and last night also Leicester City’s interest was recorded.
In this moment the Magpies are in pole position to sign him back, since Remy wants more playing time.
Current Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink is not very keen on let him go, and the French striker will only be allowed to leave Stamford Bridge if the Premier League champions find suitable replacement.
Now that Pato seems really close to sign for the Blues, probably the club will let Remy go.
