Loic Remy leaves La Liga, joins Lille

Loic Remy has joined French club Lille after spending last season in Spain with Las Palmas and Getafe, it has been confirmed.

The 31-year-old made just 12 starts in La Liga last season across both clubs, netting eight goals across his two stints.

His contract at parent club Las Palmas – whom he joined a year ago from Chelsea – expired following their relegation to the second tier.

“I’m really happy to come home to France,” Remy said in a statement, released on the club website.

“I have missed this league and it is important to sign Lille, a massive club in France.”
