Loic Remy: Set for a return to the Premier League with Newcastle

Loic Remy: Set for a return to the Premier League with Newcastle

The Frenchman was left out of QPR's squad to face Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend and is now poised to seal a return to the Premier League as part of a season-long arrangement.

Newcastle are desperate for fresh firepower ahead of the new campaign but had been warned by R's boss Harry Redknapp they would have to stump up £2m to borrow a player that cost £8m in January.

"We paid about £8m for him, so if someone wants to loan him for a year, we are entitled to get £2m a year for him," Redknapp said.

"Make no mistake, he will get between 15 and 20 goals next season if he goes to a Premier League club. He is a top-class player - a player for any club in the Premier League in my opinion."

A deal for Remy, who scored six goals in 14 appearances for the Loftus Road club, would represent a crucial breakthrough for the Magpies' under-fire director of football, Joe Kinnear.

Kinnear is still locked in talks with Lyon over another striker, Bafetimbi Gomis, and sought this weekend to reassure fans awaiting a first summer arrival that he was not "dragging his heels" in the transfer market.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
