Loic Remy has departed Chelsea in a permanent move to Las Palmas. It is expected that Remy will sign a 2-year contract with the La Liga outfit. Marca, today, have reported that Remy was released on a free transfer but Chelsea have yet to officially confirm this. Las Palmas staved off competition from Premier League clubs including former club Newcastle, where the Frenchman spent the 2013/14 season.
Remy signed for Chelsea in 2014 from QPR, following the triggering of a £8 million buyout clause. He made 32 league appearances for Chelsea, scoring eight goals. Loic scored on his debut for the Club in a 4-2 victory against Swansea and scored crucial goals during Chelsea’s title run-in, most notably the 2-1 victory at home to Stoke and 3-2 victory away at Hull. The following season, Loic was a fringe player after his substitution at half time in the Charity Shield. Loic only scored one goal in the 2015-16 season – a consolation against Leicester City in a 2-1 defeat.
Loic was recently on loan at Crystal Palace but it wasn’t a successful spell. He was injured for two months, weeks after signing for The Eagles so he returned to Chelsea for two months. Loic only made his debut against Bolton Wanderers in January. At Crystal Palace, Loic only made eight appearances: 5 in the league and 3 in the cup competitions.
We wish Loic well.
