Report: Newcastle hold meeting over next move to re-sign Chelsea striker Loic Remy

Loic Remy

Newcastle have reportedly held a meeting today to plan a move for Chelsea's Loic Remy.

According to the Daily Mail, Newcastle have held a meeting today to determine their next move to re-sign Chelsea striker Loic Remy.

The Magpies have splashed the cash during this month's transfer window, snapping up midfielders Henri Saivet and Jonjo Shelvey from Bordeaux and Swansea City respectively, whilst winger Andros Townsend joined the club from Tottenham on Wednesday.

That makes Newcastle the Premier League's biggest spenders so far this month, and they may yet be seeking more reinforcements before Monday's transfer deadline.

The Daily Mail report that Newcastle are keen to bring Chelsea striker Loic Remy back to St. James' Park, and have held a meeting today to map out their next move for the French forward.

Remy, 29, hit 14 goals in 27 games during a loan spell with the Magpies during the 2013/14 season, and having moved to Chelsea that summer, Remy has been playing as a backup to Diego Costa at Stamford Bridge.

Now looking for first-team football during the second half of the season, Remy is being targeted for a move back to Newcastle, and it's believed that the Magpies held a meeting earlier today in order to prepare their next move for the striker.

However, it's stated that Chelsea would prefer to let loanee Radamel Falcao leave the club rather than part ways with Remy, despite BBC Sport reporting that Brazilian striker Alexandre Pato is on his way to Stamford Bridge ahead of Monday's deadline.
