QPR transfers: Loic Remy urges Yann M’Vila to move to Loftus Road
QPR transfers: New signing Loic Remy urges his France team-mate Yann M'Vila to join him at Loftus Road this month
Loic Remy has urged his France team-mate Yann M’Vila to follow his lead and move to Queens Park Rangers this month.
Remy, 26, signed a four-and-a-half year deal with the Hoops on Wednesday after completing an £8m move from Marseille and opting to turn down an offer from Newcastle United.
M’Vila has been heavily linked with a move to QPR in recent days, with Harry Redknapp understood to be readying a £6.6m bid for the Rennes midfielder.
And speaking at his unveiling at QPR’s training ground on Friday, Remy underlined his desire to see the 22-year-old join him in west London.
“Yann is someone I know very well because we play in the national team together and he’s very good player,” said Remy.
“He’s a great passer and has good vision as well. I would like him to come here because the project is very exciting.
“I spoke to some of my team-mates in training yesterday and we all want him here. I’ve told him how nice it is here, how nice the people are.
“It’s quite different to France and I think he’d be very happy here but ultimately it’s not up to me to make decisions based on his career, it’s up to him at the end of the day.
“I think this club would be great for him to progress as a player and we need players like Yann M’Vila for the club to progress in the future.”
