‘Beşiktaş set to loan Loïc Remy’

Updated: July 8, 2015

According to reports in the UK media today Beşiktaş have agreed terms with Chelsea over a Loïc Rémy loan deal, this deal would include an option to buy the player at the end of the season per

The amount of the buyout clause was not revealed by any credible source however, rumors however suggest the fee would be somewhere in the area of € 7 million.

UK based transfer broker Muzzi Ozcan revealed today that Loïc Rémy’s future would likely be decided over the course of this week, however he did not specify any club to which Rémy may be headed to. While West Ham is a possibility aswell, it is believed that the most likely candidate for Rémy are the Black Eagles.

Muzzi is not the player’s actual agent so he likely doesn’t know the specifics, but if he states that he expects something to be decided later this week this usually means that transfer talks have entered the final stages and that a conclusion can be expected soon.

Another noteworthy indication came from the account of ADS Sports CEO Amy Christophers. She initially stated that a potential Loïc Rémy transfer would not take place before – or close to – deadline day. However, not long after she corrected herself after gathering new information and then confirmed that Chelsea had given the go ahead to the Black Eagles to start negotiating with the player.

And her second tweet…

It should be noted however that Amy also claimed that Beşiktaş had signed Liverpool’s Glen Johnson only a few weeks ago and that did not pan out, however she does seem to have some inside connections in several clubs, including Chelsea, so this could be another relatively reliable indication that the Black Eagles are close to sealing a deal for Loïc Rémy.
