Newcastle very weak favourites to land unwanted QPR ace

French striker Loic Remy, who signed for now relegated English club Queens Park Rangers in the January transfer window, is struggling to find a new club.

Following a good deal of wrangling over his terms and the bid, QPR finally managed to purchase him for 8 million pounds. And despite his 6 goals in 14 games, QPR failed to stay in the Premier League.

Although his release clause of 6.8 million pounds is fairly low for a club willing to shell out some money, allegations of rape that Remy was accused of in May, and a high wage demand, might ensure that Remy stays at Loftus Road next season.

Remy is not keen to represent QPR in the Championship next season, and his wages are surely something that they would prefer trimming, but his personal problems might prove a significant obstacle therein.

Newcastle are the bookmakers’ favourites to sign Remy, but at odds of 3.00 from SkyBet it doesn’t seem all that likely that St. James’ Park will see Remy run out on to the field with his French compatriots this season.
