Loic Remy's decision could make or break Newcastle's season

Newcastle United could quickly climb up the table with the Frenchman on board.

According to a recent report from Get West London, Chelsea striker Loic Remy has four clubs to choose from if he leaves Chelsea on loan this month.

The French international is being tipped to leave Stamford Bridge once the Blues tie up a deal for Alexandre Pato and Newcastle United are said to be desperate for Remy’s signature.

Crystal Palace, Swansea City and Aston Villa are the other clubs reportedly keen on the forward, but such is Newcastle’s predicament right now that Remy’s decision has the power to make or break their campaign.

The Magpies know what Remy can do after a previous loan spell at St James’ Park saw a return of 14 goals and three assists in 27 matches, and with Steve McClaren’s side currently 18th in the Premier League table, two points behind Norwich City as things stand, there is plenty of work to be done.

There have been signs of a revival in recent times but Newcastle need more new additions to ensure they remain a top flight club next season and beyond.

The addition of Andros Townsend, along with previous signings Henri Saivet and Jonjo Shelvey, are all promising, but what Newcastle really need is a regular goal-scorer with a point to prove and a place at Euro 2016 to fight for.

Remy is that player and his decision as to whether or not to choose a return to St James’ Park could have huge ramifications for the Magpies.
