Newcastle United are interested in signing Loic Remy on loan from Chelsea in the January transfer window, according to The Chronicle.
However, it has been reported that the move would not be completed until late in the window.
“However, the Magpies still haven’t given up hope of bringing Chelsea’s Loic Remy back to Tyneside on loan, though any deal for the Frenchman would not be completed until late in the window,” claims the report in The Chronicle.
Remy joined Chelsea from Queens Park Rangers in the summer of 2014, but he has failed to establish himself as a first-choice striker for the Blues.
The 29-year-old France international striker scored seven goals and created five chances in 19 Premier League appearances last season.
So far this campaign, the former Newcastle loanee has scored just one goal and created only two chances in nine league games for Chelsea.
Newcastle are third from bottom in the Premier League table at the moment with 21 points from 22 matches.
Steve McClaren’s side are just a point behind 17th-placed Swansea City and very much in danger of getting relegated to the Championship at the end of the season.
