QPR striker considering early exit
The 26-year-old striker joined the Premier League strugglers during the January transfer window but sources in France claim there is a relegation release clause in the player’s contract, the website claims.
Despite this clause, Remy could still look to leave the Rs in the summer even in the event QPR stay up, with the Frenchman hoping his performances between now and the end of the season will attract summer bids.
The striker is unlikely to receive a contract offer worth more than his current £75,000-a-week deal with QPR, after agent Willie McKay negotiated his transfer from Marseille in January.
The website reported a source as telling them: “He was in a bad moment with Marseille and it was the right time to leave, but Loic sees QPR as a step to a bigger club.
“It is true he is on a good contract but other teams will take notice if he continues his form.”
Remy has three goals to his name in the Premier League this season, with QPR picking up seven points in those games he’s scored in to take the bottom-placed club within four points of safety with nine games left to play.
This follows his struggles earlier in the campaign, when he managed just one goal in 14 Ligue 1 appearances for Marseille.
The France international moved to the London club having failed to agree personal terms with Newcastle United, and finally joined up with Harry Redknapp who previously tried to sign him while he was manager of Tottenham Hotspur.
