Loic Remy not in Newcastle's plans?

Clive Rose

In the January transfer window, Newcastle United thought they had a deal with striker Loic Remy delivered, but at the last moment Remy spurned Newcastle and decided to join the Queens Park Rangers instead. In a bit of maybe karma, QPR was relegated to the Championship this past season and now Remy wants out.

There are reports of a £6.8 million relegation release clause in Remy's contract, which should make him an attractive buy for most teams, but despite rumors linking him with the Toon again, The Chronicle is reporting that Newcastle is going to steer clear of the French international this go-round.

Remy has a £6.8million release clause in his current deal with Rangers and doesn't want to ply his trade in the Championship.

He is unlikely to get any sympathy from Newcastle after holding initial talks with the Magpies in January before turning down the chance to travel to Tyneside to see what United had to offer - instead opting for a lie in at a London hotel.

Originally new Director of Football Joe Kinnear promised the Toon would have a new signing by the first Friday of the transfer window, which is here, but no announcement has been made yet. Newcastle have been linked to a handful of strikers, including Remy, but it appears he's out of the picture.
