Chelsea forward Loic Remy joined La Liga outfit Las Palmas on a two-year deal in a reported free transfers on Friday.
The Frenchman, who joined Chelsea from QPR in 2014, departs after three seasons with the Blues. The 30-year-old often featured off the substitute's bench during his first season at Stamford Bridge but saw limited action in 2015/16 and spent last season on loan at Crystal Palace, where injury restricted him to just five appearance for the Eagles. In total, Remy made 47 appearances for Chelsea and scored 12 goals. The move leaves manager Antonio Conte with three recognized forwards on his 25-man roster, as want-away man Diego Costa has been included along with Alvaro Morata and Michy Batshuayi.

Loic Remy looks set to leave Stamford Bridge bringing to an end a disappointing few years at the club.

The 30-year-old has struggled due to a number of setbacks since joining the Blues from Queens Park Rangers and Antonio Conte has given Remy the green light to leave should Chelsea sign another striker. Following an impressive debut season, 7-goals from six Premier League starts in only 665 minutes, Remy then struggled due to persistent calf and groin problems and in his following campaign managing less than 5 hours of first-team football. Limited opportunities behind Diego Costa and the signing of Belgium international Michy Batshuayi left Remy out in the cold and he was shipped out on-loan to Crystal Palace. However, the move proved disastrous as his injury problems continued. Chelsea will now look to cut their losses, although his recent record has scared off a number of potential suitors who expressed concerns over his fitness. But, his chequered past doesn’t appear to have dampened the spirits of Everton and Southampton who are prepared to meet Chelsea’s £5 million valuation.

Crystal Palace will face its toughest stretch of the season yet, but a crop of injury returnees are sure to help the cause.

The Eagles have three games in the six days, starting on Sunday against Liverpool and followed by Spurs in midweek. Those two clubs happen to be the only two sides that have recorded more points than Crystal Palace's 13 in the past month. And now it looks like the club will have James Tomkins and Loic Remy back from injury after seeing the return of James McArthur and Patrick van Aanholt last week. Said manager Sam Allardyce: "We have a few back out there training with us that haven’t been available in recent weeks which is ideal with a congested fixture period coming up...The full squad will be used over that period, obviously Mamadou cannot play on Sunday so that makes it important us having James Tomkins back available and Loic gives us another option on the front line."

Crystal Palace is slowly running out of time to figure things out under new manager Sam Allardyce after another loss.

The Eagles put together a valiant effort against a streaking Everton side, holding Romelu Lukaku and company scoreless until the 87th minute. But they'll look back on the last five minutes of the match with frustration as one counter-attack was all Everton needed to take three points from Selhurst Park after Seamus Coleman scored off a through ball from Tom Davies less than three minutes shy of stoppage time. Loic Remy received his first Premier Leauge start alongside Christian Benteke, but it wasn't enough to jumpstart a Palace attack that has gone goalless in three of the club's last four league matches.

Crystal Palace fans will be pleased to see Loic Remy on the pitch for the first time ahead of the second half of the season.

Remy was handed the start and played 45 minutes under new manager Sam Allardyce in the club's scoreless draw against Bolton Wanderers, which will force a replay at Selhurst Park in two weeks' time. The on-loan forward from Chelsea looked dangerous and didn't show show any signs of rust, hitting the post once and forcing Bolton's keeper into two saves in just the first half alone. But without nine players, including five starters from last weekend, Palace had to settle for a 0-0 draw.

Crystal Palace forward Loic Remy has a chance to make his club debut this weekend in the FA Cup against Bolton.

The forward has endured an injury nightmare after suffering a major thigh injury just one week after joining the club on a season-long loan from Chelsea. Since then, Remy has missed nearly four months after suffering a setback three weeks ago upon his return to light training. But the fog has started to clear with Palace fans wondering about a potentially dynamic duo when paired with Christian Benteke. Said manager Sam Allardyce: "He's back into full training with the lads but we really need to give him a couple of games behind closed doors. I would say that if everything goes alright from that point of view, then the earliest we might see Loic we be at Bolton in the cup."

Loic Remy will have to wait a while, quite a while, before being able to make his Eagles debut.

The striker only joined Palace nine-days ago but Alan Pardew confirmed earlier this week that the on-loan Chelsea star had suffered an injury in training: "He's just got a little thigh strain. I don't know how long he's out for, but he's had a scan on Tuesday morning and I'll know more on Thursday." Remy will now return to Cobham for treatment and could miss up-to 8 weeks. Fortunately, the arrival of Christian Benteke will help to ensure Palace still have attacking options, despite Fraizer Campbell also being side-lined. Yohan Cabaye [minor groin strain] looks set to miss the trip to Middlesbrough but James McArthur should be fine and Pardew could call upon new signing Mathieu Flamini if needed to bolster the midfield.

Crystal Palace has unveiled a completely revamped attack in the past week with the signings of Christian Benteke and now Loic Remy.

The Chelsea forward joins Crystal Palace on a season-log loan after falling well down the pecking order under Antonio Conte at Chelsea. Now the French international links back up with manager Alan Pardew, who he played under with Newcastle in 2013-14 en route to scoring 13 goals for the Magpies. Said Pardew: Loic has been a target of mine throughout this transfer window and I’m delighted the deal has been done. I brought him to Newcastle so I know what he is capable of and I am convinced he will be a quality addition to our squad as we evolve."

Loic Remy may have kicked his last ball for Chelsea after the striker was replaced during the first half of yesterdays’ win at Villa Park due to a groin problem.

Remy has endured an injury ravaged couple of years at Chelsea – just 9 Premier League starts since joining from Queens Park Rangers - and following this latest setback his time at Stamford Bridge maybe coming to an end. Speaking after the 4-0 win over Aston Villa, Guus Hiddink confirmed: "I think (Remy) will be out for a long period," although when asked if he would play again this season, the Dutchman added: "I can't say because the doctor has to make analysis tomorrow. Next week we will know more. But, my experience is you will not recover in just a few days." Given the form of Diego Costa in recent months, Pato scoring on his debut and the availability of Radamel Falcao only serving to intensify competition for places - Remy could be left out in the cold.

Loic Remy came on late in the second half and scored to draw Chelsea within one but couldn't rescue a point as the Blues fell 2-1 to Leicester City.

The bad news keeps coming for Jose Mourinho and his squad as they suffered another loss and also watched as Eden Hazard left the match in the first half with an injury. The injury didn't look extremely serious but it certainly didn't help to lose their most creative player when it was always likely that they were going to have to score goals. Loic Remy did well as a substitute but the starters couldn't breach the Foxes' defense and the west London club had to settle for a ninth defeat on the campaign that left them only a single point above the relegation zone.

Loic Remy and Pedro remain out for week 10.

Remy and Pedro missed Chelsea's midweek clash in the Champions League and the injury situation "has not changed" for Jose Mourinho. The Blues will likely start Willian and Eden Hazard once again, and both seem to be good choices against a mediocre West Ham side. Remy and Pedro's injuries are not expected to be serious and both have a chance to return in week 11.

Loic Remy and Pedro have both been ruled out of Chelsea's midweek clash against Dynamo Kiev.

Chelsea face Kiev in the Champions League in midweek and both Remy and Pedro have small injuries that won't allow them to play. This doesn't seem as a Mourinho trick as both players have reportedly remained in London. With Pedro out, one of Oscar or Eden Hazard will likely start in midfield, while Diego Costa will remain in his starting striker position.

Loic Remy and Radamel Falcao are battling for a start during Diego Costa's suspension.

With Costa suspended, both Remy and Falcao are ready to make an impact at Chelsea. Remy said earlier this week that he would love to face his old club this is shaping up like the perfect revenge game. It's risky to use either striker in leagues that lock at the first match kickoff, but in leagues where you can make changes up until kickoff of the Chelsea match, feel free to fire up Remy or Falcao.

New York Red Bulls pulled off a 4-2 win against defending Premier League champions Chelsea, with all four goals coming in the second half.

A rude welcome for the visiting Blues, who got the scoring started when Loic Remy latched on to a pass from Oscar inside the area and had plenty of time to slot home. Something happened at the half though and the Red Bulls, fielding a side made up mainly of academy players, came out firing with three unanswered goals between the 51st and 73rd minute. Chelsea did not sub in fringe players either: Eden Hazard, John Terry, Nemanja Matic and Diego Costa all came on for the second frame. Hazard would score to cut the Red Bull advantage to one, but the hosts would grab a fourth goal late to seal the points.

Palace could be back in the race for Chelsea front-man Loic Remy as Chelsea agree to let him go…

Reports in Turkey have stated that Chelsea agreed a deal to let striker Loic Remy go to Besiktas, but the player is yet to agree to the switch. This will alert Palace who can not only offer Remy the chance to stay in London, but the chance to link-up with former Newcastle boss Alan Pardew and captain Yohan Cabaye. A top class striker has always been the top priority for Palace as they look to kick-on from their consecutive 11th and 10th place PL finishes. Remy would fit the bill and looks to have relegated to third choice again at Chelsea, following their capture of Ramadel Falcao. Regular first-team football will also be vital if Remy is to feature for France in the Euros at the end of the season. Something you suspect Pardew might mention should it reach the negotiation stage…
