Stoke have cash to win Remy battle

Stoke City have joined the battle for Rennes striker Loic Remy.

The People says super-rich Stoke City are ready to smash their transfer record for French striker Remy and beat West Ham United and Liverpool in the race for the £13 million star.

Wealthy chairman Peter Coates and assistant boss David Kemp flew to watch the Nice hitman against Toulouse in a pre-season friendly yesterday as they made a late and possibly decisive entry to the chase.

Remy is keen to move to the Premier League but fed up waiting on West Ham agreeing a fee or Liverpool coming up with the cash for him to make his dream move.

Now Stoke boss Tony Pulis is having a real go at winning the battle, with the Coates' family - loaded from the success of their bet365 company, but unable to find a top player - ready to join them.
