Starting a look at some quality players that Newcastle has had on loan, we revisit Loïc Rémy’s time with the Magpies.

As we continue to wait for Premier League action to return, we are kicking off a new series that will highlight some of the players that have had positive impacts on loan with Newcastle United. To start off, we revisit the season that Loïc Rémy spent with the Magpies.

The French international played the first few years as a professional in his native country. In 2013, he made the move to England to join Queens Park Rangers. He scored six goals from between his arrival and the end of their relegation-bound season.

Ahead of the 2013-14 season, Rémy signed with Newcastle United on loan. After missing a couple of matches due to injury, he went two matches without a goal before he burst onto the scene towards the end of September. In three straight EPL matches, Rémy scored a brace against Hull City, a goal against Everton, and another brace against Cardiff City.

Another good run of scoring came in November when he notched one goal in three straight matches, against Chelsea, Spurs, and Norwich. Newcastle won all three fixtures. He registered his third brace of the season in a blowout win over Stoke City on Boxing Day.

A red card saw him miss three of four matches in February. He scored a goal in each of the next two matches, including a late winner against Aston Villa. An injury kept him out of the lineup for the majority of March.

His final appearance for the Magpies came against Cardiff City as he registered a goal and an assist. He finished the season with 14 goals and three assists in Premier League play.

Next. The Frustrating Case of Dwight Gayle. dark

After the season, he joined Chelsea on a full transfer from QPR. His tenure with the Blues was largely disappointing as his totals in two years didn’t equal the one season with Newcastle.
