Loic Remy is keen on moving to Newcastle United, according to French sports daily L’Equipe.

The 26-year-old striker is hot property in the current transfer window. QPR boss Harry Redknapp flew to France at the weekend to watch Marseille take on Guingamp at the Stade Velodrome, sitting next to the club’s president Vincent Labrune in the director’s box.

And while Redknapp made an offer for Remy, the striker is believed to have turned it down.

The striker is keen to see what other options arrive and prefers a switch to Newcastle, which may be on the agenda.


The Magpies are known to be in the running for Remy and Marseille are expecting a bid from Alan Pardew’s men to arrive.

It remains to be seen though whether it will achieve the level needed for a sale.

QPR’s offer is thought to have been €10M plus winger Shaun Wright-Phillips.

Remy has netted once in Ligue 1 so far this season.
