Guus Hiddink: Transfer window news and injury update on strikers Loic Remy and Falcao


Chelsea interim manager Guus Hiddink says striker Loic Remy will be fit to face Scunthorpe in the FA Cup next week.

The 28-year-old is at the moment ruled out of action together with Colombian striker Radamel Falcao.

And the Dutchman hopes to have the two back as soon as possible so as to have rotation options in the offensive department.

"Loic Remy is okay in a few days," Hiddink said.

"I don't know for the weekend but he will be okay soon after. If it is a longer period of instability regarding the recovery of strikers then yes, we have just Diego [Costa] so we will see if we can recover one as fast as possible.

"Falcao we played in a [training] game and he had the injury again that he had before to the inside of his thigh.

"Our medical staff tried to build him up but he had a setback which is not a positive signal. We hope within 10 days he might be fit again but not ready to play.

"[Remy leaving?] Remy has signed a contract here and must be fit for us. He's having a difficult time regarding his injuries and has had a calf problem for several days. First of all he has to prove that he's a good Chelsea player.

"[And] there's been no contact at this moment from Monaco about Falcao.

"We have an open period from the first to the last day of the January window. It's not good to talk in advance in this case.

"Things must be done when you want to reinforce your squad, or if other clubs want to do so, so first of all you talk directly to your own management and the management who is responsible for the other player. That is the right way, not going through the side door.

"First of all it's important, in the situation Chelsea are in, that we have the most powerful squad possible."
