Potters won’t recruit Remy – Nice

A number of Premier League clubs have been keeping tabs on Remy’s

situation this summer, with the frontman making it clear that he

would be keen on a move to England. Stoke stepped up their pursuit

earlier in the week, inviting Remy to the club for talks and

showing him around their training ground. The 23-year-old was

impressed by what he saw and heard at Stoke but admitted he would

take his time before making a decision on his future. And it now

seems Stoke are out of the running, with Remy’s immediate focus on

Nice’s opening Ligue 1 game of the season against Valenciennes on

Saturday night. Speaking about the player, Nice general manager

Patrick Governatori told L’Equipe: “It will not be sorted out with

Stoke. “I hope he will score on Saturday night. If he can play a

good match, he could get the opportunity to be in the French

starting XI (against Norway on Wednesday).” Reports in France

suggest scouts from Tottenham, West Ham and Sunderland will be

present to watch Remy in action for Nice. It is understood that

Remy would only be willing to part with Remy for a fee of 14million

euros (£11.7m).
