St James’ Park side look to secure services of French forward permanently.
Newcastle United are looking to secure the services of loaned in QPR striker Loic Remy on a permanent basis and will offer the Loftus Road side £6m to seal the deal according to the Daily Mirror.
Alan Pardew had thought he had snapped up the former Marseille man last January only to see the 26 year old opt instead to join QPR. Despite the fact that the Super Hoops were relegated to the Championship the French international had impressed many, scoring six goals in 14 appearances.
Newcastle United did finally land Remy on a season long loan deal in August and once again the lethal finisher has proven just how capable he is of scoring regularly in the English top tier, netting five goals in five appearances already this term.
Such form has led to a recall to the French national team set-up and continued success at club level may just result in a spot in Didier Deschamps 2014 World Cup finals squad, assuming of course that France make it to the tournament.
Pardew will hope that Remy can effectively fill the void left by Demba Ba’s departure to Chelsea.
