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.

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.
