Tottenham transfers: Redknapp puts price on Remy loan
Tottenham transfers: Harry Redknapp says a club looking to seal a loan deal for Loic Remy would be expected to pay £2m
Harry Redknapp says a club looking to seal a loan deal for Queens Park Rangers striker Loic Remy would be expected to pay £2m for the France striker.
The 26-year-old forward has been linked with both Tottenham and Newcastle United in recent weeks following QPR’s relegation from the Premier League.
Spurs are reportedly ready to swoop for Remy should Gareth Bale leave White Hart Lane to join Real Madrid this summer, while the forward is still one of the Magpies’ top targets.
Redknapp was full of praise for the striker, who scored six goals in 14 Premier League appearances for the Hoops last season.
But the QPR boss insists that the west London club have no intention of letting the France international leave Loftus Road on the cheap.
“I think we paid about £8m for him,” said Redknapp. “If you were buying him for £8m and you gave him a four-year contract, at the end of the four years he’s a free agent anyway, so he costs you £2m a year.
“If someone wants to loan him for a year then they’re entitled to pay £2m for him really.”
He added: “Make no mistake, he’ll get between 15 and 20 goals next year if he went to a Premier League club without a doubt. He’s a top-class player.
“He’ll probably play for France in the World Cup. He’s a player for any club in the Premier League in my opinion.”
