Queens Park Rangers have completed their first signing of the January transfer window in the form of Marseille striker Loic Remy.
The French International has joined for a club record fee of £8 million and has penned a four-and-a-half year contract at the club.
He had initially been in discussions with Newcastle regarding a move to replace Demba Ba who left to join Chelsea earlier in the window.
The signing will prove to be a coup for a side who currently sit bottom of the Premier League table, and look set to add to his signing with National teammate Yann M’Vila who will join in the coming days.
Remy who will wear the number 18 shirt at Loftus Road has 17 caps for his country, and has been scouted by new Manager Harry Redknapp twice over the last two weeks playing for his former side Marseille in Ligue 1.
Harry Redknapp mentioned on the clubs official website: “I’m delighted to bring him in – he’s a great buy for us.”
