Report: Newcastle to Sign Remy From Marseille

MOST COMMENTED

Things might finally be looking up for Newcastle United. Several reports are claiming that the Magpies will sign Marseille striker Loic Remy for a transfer fee of around $14 million. Once Remy agrees to personal terms, he will become a Newcastle player.

The other piece of good news for the struggling North England club is the return of French playmaker Yohan Cabaye, who appeared as a late substitute during Newcastle’s 0-0 draw away to Norwich City. Perhaps the most meaningful moment of an otherwise boring afternoon happened when the Frenchman threw his shirt into the Newcastle fans at the end of the game. "I'm very happy to be back," Cabaye said. "We didn't lose the game so it was a good day."

Not losing is certainly a good day for Newcastle recently. To say that Alan Pardew’s men, who finished 5th in the Barclays Premier League last season, have had a difficult first five months of the year would be a tremendous understatement. Numerous first team injuries, the loss of star striker Demba Ba to Chelsea, the poor form of last season’s sensation Papiss Cisse, and captain Fabricio Coloccini revealing that he wants to return to Argentina, have contributed to the Magpies being far closer to the relegation zone than the UEFA Champions League so far this season. Pardew is hoping the capture of Remy and the return of Cabaye can be the catalyst for a badly needed run of good form.
