Loic Remy reportedly still wants to leave Chelsea this month, despite Guus Hiddink’s expressing a desire to keep the striker at Stamford Bridge this month.
Remy – who is a target for Aston Villa, Swansea, Newcastle and Crystal Palace – is reportedly keen to leave the Blues after becoming frustrated by his lack of first-team chances at Stamford Bridge. Remy, who is rated at around £10million, is keen to get more games under his belt to secure his place in France’s squad ahead of the Euro 2016 finals.
Hiddink has reassured fringe players that they’ll be given a fairer crack of the whip under his tenure for the rest of the season, saying that he’s counting on every player in the squad.
But Remy still wants a move away, according to the Mirror.
The French striker made just eight appearances in the first half of the season, and has seen his path blocked by Diego Costa, despite the fact that the Spanish international has been in terrible form.
With Radamel Falcao suffering an injury relapse, Remy is the only other established senior striker, aside from Patrick Bamford, who is set to return from his disappointing loan spell at Palace.
