The north-east giants secured a season-long loan deal for the prolific France international in August, with the attacker having since gone on to record an impressive 13 goals and two assists in total in his 24 matches in all competitions for Alan Pardew’s side, all of which have come in his 23 Premier League outings for then club.
And as a result, the Magpies are understood to be desperate to land Remy on a permanent deal when his loan stint at St James’ Park comes to an end this summer.
However, with his parent club now facing a potential £50m fine, Newcastle are said to be confident of landing Remy on the cheap next season.
