Chelsea confirm the signing of Loïc Remy from Queens Park Rangers on a four-year contract
Loic Remy was all smiles as he posed with a Chelsea shirt on Sunday after joining Jose Mourinho’s side on a four-year contract from Queens Park Rangers.
The France international has put pen to paper on a deal until the summer of 2018 at Stamford Bridge, after the Blues activated the £8.5m release clause in the 27-year-old’s contract.
“I feel very happy and very proud,” Remy told Chelsea’s website. “When I heard Chelsea wanted to sign me I said ‘let’s go’ straight away because they are one of the best clubs in the world.
“I remember the amazing atmosphere at Stamford Bridge when I played there for Marseille and I can’t wait to play for the first time in front of my new fans.”

Remy joined QPR from Marseille in January 2013, scoring six goals in 14 games, as Rangers were relegated from the Premier League. He spent the 2013-14 campaign on loan at Newcastle United, where he scored 14 goals.
A QPR statement read: “The club would like to thank Loic for his contribution during his time at QPR.”
