On loan Newcastle United striker Loic Remy will hold off on making a decision as to whether to join the club on a permanent deal until next summer, Sky Sports reports.

The French international had made the move to St James’ Park on a season long loan deal over the summer from recently relegated Queens Park Rangers after Harry Redknapp insisted that he had no plans for the 26-year-old and were thought to be keen on getting him off their books.

However, with Rangers pushing hard for an immediate return to the top flight they might want to reconsider their stance on him as having a proven Premier League frontman leading their line could be hugely beneficial.

Newcastle remain hopeful that situation can be avoided, as they are keen to strike a permanent deal, but Remy is staying noncommittal  at this stage.

“I will look at whatever offers come in – whether they be from Newcastle or whether they be from QPR,” he said.

“Then I’ll consider what is best for me and for my future career.

“The most important thing at the moment is playing well at Newcastle, then hopefully trying to get a more regular position in the French squad.

“And then, afterwards, I am still a QPR player. I am just here on loan.”

Remy had originally snubbed a move to Newcastle in January in favour of a switch to QPR, but he claims to have no regrets over his decision even though the Hoops are now plying their trade in the Championship.

“I was happy with the choice I made. I believed Newcastle was a great club and it would have offered me a great career but for personal reasons I decided to go to QPR,” he added.

“But it was disappointing because we suffered relegation. Now I am really happy to be here at Newcastle.”
