Loic Remy has this evening turned down a switch to QPR, according to French sports daily L’Equipe.

QPR boss Harry Redknapp attended Marseille’s Coupe de France game against Guingamp at the Stade Velodrome earlier today and sat next to the French club’s president Vincent Labrune in the director’s box.

The purpose of Redknapp’s mission was to persuade Remy to swap Marseille for a relegation battle in the Premier League with QPR – but it seems he may have failed to work his magic on the goal-getter.

Remy is believed to be waiting to see what other offers present themselves during the current transfer window.


The 26-year-old striker has been strongly linked with Newcastle United, who are bidding to replace Demba Ba, the Senegalese star having joined Chelsea.

While of late interest has also surfaced from Germany.

Both Borussia Dortmund and Schalke have recently been mooted as looking at making a bid for the France international this month.
