The 30-year-old struggled for regular game time throughout his time in west London amid fierce competition for striking berths.

He was allowed to link up with Crystal Palace in 2016-17 on a season-long loan, but saw injury restrict him to just eight appearances.

With it clear that he did not figure in Antonio Conte’s plans, Goal revealed that Serie A outfit Cagliari were among those eager to bring him on board.

Remy has, however, taken the decision to head for Spain, rather than Italy.

He undertook a medical in London on Thursday, with the deal formalised 24 hours later.

A man with 31 international caps to his name is now heading to Las Palmas ready for his official unveiling.
