Former France striker Remy signs for Ligue 1 side Lille

Former Chelsea forward Loic Remy has returned to his native France by signing a two-year deal with Lille, the Ligue 1 club announced on Friday.

Lille, France, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 14th Jul, 2018 ) :Former Chelsea forward Loic Remy has returned to his native France by signing a two-year deal with Lille, the Ligue 1 club announced on Friday.

The 31-year-old joined Lille after spending two seasons in Spain with Las Palmas, although he had a spell on loan with Getafe last term.

Remy first left France in 2013 when he signed for then-Premier League outfit Queens Park Rangers from Marseille.

"It makes me really happy to come back to France, in a league which I've missed and to sign with Lille, a really big French club," he said.

Remy has scored seven international goals for France in 31 appearances, but hasn't played for the national side since 2014.

He netted 12 times for Chelsea despite mainly only featuring as a substitute, having impressed with 14 Premier League goals in the 2013-14 campaign while on loan at Newcastle United from QPR.

Lille are hoping to rebuild in the upcoming season after a dreadful year which saw them only narrowly avoid relegation in May.
