Loic Remy has arrived in Newcastle to complete a medical before signing a one year loan deal with the Magpies from QPR with an option to buy.
We understand that there is a buy out clause in the contract for €11m (Around £9.5m) which Newcastle can activate at any time during the player’s one year stay at the club.
Newcastle will pay a £2m loan fee and they are expected to cover all of his £2m a year wages, although the latter piece of information is unconfirmed.
Bafetimbi Gomis remains in France as he awaits minor details for his transfer from Lyon to Newcastle for €10m to be completed (€8m + €2m add ons). Football News has learnt that there will be a meeting, potentially via phone, to attempt to get past the current agent issues later today.
There remains competition from Marseille and one other Premier League club and should either of those sides offer more than the proposed €10m from Newcastle then Lyon will pull the deal with the Magpies. As far as we are concerned, Marseille are yet to make an approach for Gomis and have by no means agreed wages for him.
