Newcastle set to tie up striker deal

Newcastle striker Loic Remy

Newcastle United could try to tie up a permanent move for Queens Park Rangers striker Loic Remy in January, according to the Daily Mirror.

The Frenchman, who controversially snubbed the Magpies for relegation-bound Rangers in last season’s January transfer window, has been in blistering form since joining them on loan, netting five goals in his last three Premier League appearances.

And after a summer which saw few new faces at St James’ Park, it is thought that Toon boss Alan Pardew is keen to add to his strikeforce.

A £6m fee is alleged to have been agreed between the two clubs, however, Newcastle may face competition for Remy’s signature, with European sides possibly targeting the front-man; and the player himself has been careful to keep his options open regarding his next move.
