After Harry Redknapp revealed Loic Remy was embarassed to admit he wasn’t interested in a move to QPR the other day, a dramatic turnaround has occured with the striker set for a medical at the club tomorrow.
It was first revealed by teammate Joey Barton on Twitter, who let the cat out the bag suggesting he was on his way to Loftus Road.
The French International had reportedly been on his way to Newcastle after they agreed an £8 million fee with Marseille for his services, and looked set to replace Demba Ba who moved to Cheslea.
In todays events, he no longer will be heading to St. James Park, and instead will be heading to the Premier Leagues bottom side, in what can only be a move motivated by money.
With the imminent arrival of Yann M’Vila from Rennes, Redknapp is certainly splashing the cash, and has gone against his original statement of not looking to break the bank in January. Both player will be on huge contract, and if the inevitable happens with The Hoops getting relegated, they will be in big trouble financially entering the Championship.
Remy is set to travel to London tomorrow to undergo a medical, which will have to be a thorough one after issues with a heart defect which was noticed on his move to Marseille in the past.
The signings of two French Internationals will help boost QPR who currently sit 5 points adrift in the relegation zone, and can’t afford to throw away any more points in their bid for survival.
