Chelsea striker completes La Liga switch 

Chelsea striker Logic Remy has completed a free transfer to La Liga side Las Palmas.

The French striker was allowed to leave Stamford Bridge after three seasons at the club. He joined Chelsea back in 2014 from Queens Park Rangers, having spent the previous campaign on loan at Newcastle where he had scored 14 goals in 27 appearances for the Magpies.

He scored nine in 27 appearances for Chelsea during his first season at the club, helping the Blues to a Premier League and League Cup double. His opportunities were more restricted in his second season, scoring just three times before being loaned out to Crystal Palace last season.

A statement from the Spanish side said:

“UD Las Palmas have signed France international striker Loic Remy, who has signed a contract for the next two seasons with the the amarillo club after reaching an agreement with Chelsea.

“Remy passed a medical on Thursday in London.

“The new Las Palmas player is flying to Gran Canaria from London and is expected to arrive tonight to the island.

“He will join his new team in training tomorrow before being unveiled at 1pm on Saturday.”

Las Palmas were keen to strengthen their attack following the surprise departure of Kevin-Prince Boateng.

Boateng, who had scored 10 goals in 28 league appearances last season, left the Gran Canarian club earlier this month citing “personal reasons” before joining Eintracht Frankfurt.

One striker didn’t get his move is Diego Costa, who failed to complete a move to Atletico Madrid and will now wait until January to return to the Spanish side. Costa has been included in Chelsea’s 25-man Premier League squad.
