Out of favour Chelsea striker Loic Remy has left the club to join Spanish outfit Las Palmas on a permanent deal according to The Blues’ official website.

The 30-year-old French hotshot has failed to feature for The Blues in competitive football since new manager Antonio Conte joined the club last summer.

Remy did bag a brace for Chelsea in a behind-closed-doors 8-2 pre-season friendly victory over neighbours Fulham in July at Cobham however the player has continued to be frozen out of the squad for competitive fixtures and has now secured a move to Las Palmas.

The striker joined Chelsea in August 2014 from local rivals Queens Park Rangers in a deal reportedly worth around £10.5 million. Remy netted nine goals in 27 appearances for The Blues in his first season at Stamford Bridge as the club went on to lift the English Premier League title and League Cup but the player struggled for form in the following campaign.

After failing to impress Blues boss Conte last summer, Remy was sent to English Premier League rivals Crystal Palace on a season-long loan deal but the frontman made just eight appearances for The Eagles as injury problems hindered his progress at Selhurst Park.

Remy will now be hoping to rebuild his reputation in Spain with unfashionable club Las Palmas.
