Ex-Chelsea star Loic Remy signs for Brest on free transfer until end of season as he continues career aged 36 | The Sun

Former Chelsea ace Remy has been without a club ever since he left Turkish outfit Adana Demirspor last summer.
According to L'Equipe, however, the striker has signed a six-month contract with Brest in a bid to relaunch his career at 36 years old.

The Frenchman amassed a total of 12 goals and three assists in 47 appearances during his three-year spell at the Blues until his departure for Las Palmas in 2017.
