Loftus Road side to beat Newcastle United to signing of Marseille striker.
QPR are reportedly set to beat Newcastle United to the signing of French international forward Loic Remy according to the BBC Sport website.
The West London side are said to be close to completing an £8m deal to sign the 26 year old, who was due to arrive on Tyneside for talks on Sunday night but seemingly decided against a move to the North-East.
QPR have matched Marseille’s asking price and have handed Remy a more lucrative contract than the Magpies were willing to offer, said to be in the region of £70k a week.

Newcastle United are said to be shocked by Remy’s change of heart and Harry Redknapp will be pleased to see the former Nice man opts for a move to the relegation threatened side.
Remy has made 14 Ligue 1 appearances for Marseille this season but only started two games. The speedy forward finished as the club’s top scorer for the past two seasons but does not appear to be a pivotal part of new boss Elie Baup’s plans.
