The France international has a €12m (£9m) release clause but the Toon failed to secure a first option on Remy, so are likely to miss out to more glamorous suitors this summer.

Remy has been a shining light in an inconsistent season for Alan Pardew’s Newcastle, bagging 13 Premier League goals in 26 games, a third of the Toon’s league goals.

After selling Jermain Defoe to Toronto FC in January, Spurs are likely to need a new striker in January despite the encouraging displays of Emmanuel Adebayor and Harry Kane in last night’s 5-1 win over Sunderland.

However, Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund have also made to offers to Remy and, unlike Spurs, both clubs will be able to offer Remy Champions League football.

The Spaniards are likely to need a replacement for star striker Diego Costa, who has been linked with Chelsea, while Dortmund need a new striker because Robert Lewandowski is set to join Bayern Munich on a free transfer at the end of the season.
