Pardew - 'Remy Is The Key' - But To Who's Door?

Last updated : 23 January 2014 By Footy Mad - Editor

The France international, on a season-long loan from Queens Park Rangers, is said to be looking for a club in the Champions League - could that be Newcastle United?

The 27-year-old scored in Newcastle’s 3-1 Premier League win over West Ham United, and Pardew felt Remy was looking more like his old self.

Alan Pardew: “Loic was looking more of a threat.

“He had three or four great chances, which he created for himself.

“He played well, and that bodes well going forward."

However, there are many obstacles before Newcastle can sign Remy - not least the fact the player is heading to Brazil with France and if he impresses he would be a massive draw - and QPR could land a fortune.

Remy’s Loftus Road salary would break the United’s strict wage structure, while QPR owner Tony Fernandes has suggested the club would look to keep him if they win promotion back to the top flight.

Pardew himself has admitted the situation is “complicated”.

Remy has insisted he won’t assess his options until the end of the World Cup.
