Loic Remy: Attracting interest in England

Loic Remy: Attracting interest in England

Chelsea, Tottenham, West Ham and Bundesliga outfit Schalke are all understood to have an interest in the highly-rated front-man.

Remy has always stated he would be keen on a move to England, but remains open-minded about his future plans.

Likewise, Sky Sports understands that Marseille are relaxed about Remy's future, whether that means him leaving in January or not.

The French side would like to keep the 25-year-old, but are open to a deal if the right offer is made.

Newcastle have had a long-standing interest in Remy, given their excellent scouting network in France.

Their interest in Remy has been heightened by the Demba Ba situation - which could see him leave the club in January if his release clause is met.

Remy, who is under contract at Marseille until 2015, has stressed that he is content at the French club.

He told his club's official website: "If I stay at Marseille, I will be the happiest man to be able to finish the season here.

"People talk about my departure, but we will see."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
