Remy already considering QPR exit

Loic Remy is considering a move away from QPR just two months after he joined the Premier League strugglers in an €9.5 million deal.

The 26-year-old striker arrived at Loftus Road in January and sources in France have told that there is a release clause in his contract in the event that QPR are relegated.



In any case, Remy could look to leave the R’s in the summer even if they survive the drop, with the Frenchman hoping to attract summer bids with his performances between now and the end of the season.

But he is unlikely to receive a contract offer worth more than the €85,000-a-week deal he picks up at QPR after agent Willie McKay brokered his transfer from Marseille in the winter window.

“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,” the source told “It is true he is on a good contract but other teams will take notice if he continues his form.”

Remy has scored three goals in five Premier League appearances, including goals in QPR’s last two matches to take the bottom-placed club to within four points of safety with nine games to play.

The France international moved to Rangers after failing to agree personal terms with Newcastle, finally joining up with Harry Redknapp after the QPR manager previously tried to sign him for Tottenham.

Remy had been one of the leading scorers in France in recent seasons but struggled for form and fitness before leaving Marseille, scoring just one Ligue 1 goal in 14 appearances.
