Loic Remy latest: QPR manager Harry Redknapp says striker is 'too decent a guy' to leave now
The France international came close to joining Liverpool, and is now being linked with Chelsea and Tottenham
Harry Redknapp is confident Loic Remy will remain at QPR this summer, despite the striker continuing to be linked with various other clubs.
The France international has a release clause in his contract in the region of £8.5m, and after impressing during a loan spell at Newcastle last season, has been the subject of intense interest.
Arsenal reportedly came close to signing the 27-year-old before failing to agree on personal terms. The former Marseille player then went to Boston to complete a switch to Liverpool, only for the Anfield club to pull the plug due to concerns about his medical.
However, Redknapp made clear today he is not keen to see Remy leave.
"I am not trying to sell him because I don't want to sell him. Looking at the prices for strikers at the moment, he should be a £20m striker.
"We want him to stay and we hope he does stay."
Redknapp revealed that QPR have been contacted by various clubs but trusts that the striker will opt to remain at Loftus Road as the west London club look to retain their Premier League status following promotion from the Championship last term.
"Loic's goal record in the Premier League is excellent. We'll need his goals. I'd take 15 each from him and Charlie Austin.
"There have been several clubs who have phoned up but they are not the kind of clubs he would want to leave QPR for.
"I don't think Loic would leave us late on. He's too decent a guy to walk away in the last week of the transfer window."
