Loic Remy is “wasting his career” at Chelsea and his failure to secure a transfer window move away from Stamford Bridge will only spell more frustration, claims Harry Redknapp.
Remy saw a £11.5million approach from Leicester fail to go through on Deadline Day after Chelsea opted to hang on to the striker amid claims they are set to cut short Radamel Falcao’s loan spell.
But Redknapp believes Leicester’s failure to complete the deal will come back to haunt the France striker, who has feels Remy is too good to merely sit on Chelsea’s bench.
‘He’s wasted two years of his career,’ Redknapp told talkSPORT.
‘He’s not got in the Chelsea team, he’s been very much a bit-part player.
‘He’s a goalscorer and he’s a great finisher. He needs to play somewhere because at the moment he comes on for ten minutes at the end of the game and it’s no use to the boy.’
Remy joined the Blues in 2014 when Chelsea activated at £10.5million release clause in his QPR contract but has made just 13 starts in all competitions for the club.
