Aston Villa manager Remi Garde is reportedly willing to offer Chelsea striker Loic Remy an on loan deal in the January transfer window as the striker is believed would jump at any chance to revive his career.
According to BBC Sports, Garde who replaced former manager Tim Sherwood following an abysmal start to the ongoing Premier League campaign wants the 28-year-old Frenchman to strengthen a Villa side four points adrift at the bottom of the Premier League – and 11 from safety.
“Loic is special because he knows the country and the league and he would be an interesting player for the team,” Garde said.
“He is part of some players I’ll try to attract to Aston Villa for sure.” the Villa boss said as quoted on BBC Sports.
Countryman Garde was assistant manager at Lyon when the Chelsea forward started his career at the Stade de Gerland.
The Villa boss will hope the forward can add goals to a side that has scored just 15 times in 19 league games, the lowest in the division.
Remy joined Chelsea in a £10.5m move from QPR last year. He has started only one Premier League game this season, scoring twice in the League Cup and once in the league.
