Newcastle United may be about to add yet another Frenchman to their already growing list at St James’ Park.
Magpies are monitoring Loic Remy’s situation at struggling Queens Park Rangers with a view to signing the front man at the end of the season.

Unsurprisingly, a whole host of Premier League clubs are currently keeping close tabs on striker Loic Remy’s current situation at relegation-threatened Queens Park Rangers.
The struggling west London club may only have just bought the deadly France attacker in the January transfer window, but if Harry Redknapp’s side continue to flounder in the Premier League relegation zone, then it seems highly unlikely that the 26-year-old will remain at Loftus Road with the club in the Championship next season – at least if he wants to retain his place in the France international setup.
That has alerted Newcastle United, who actually thought that they had bought the France international in January, only for the player to then make a late change of heart and instead join QPR.
Remy has scored five Premier League goals in just eight matches for the out-of-form Londoners, although overall this season the forward only has eight strikes in 32 games in all competitions for club and country.
That rather less impressive record, combined with his long history of knee problems, would make him a risky purchase for the North-East outfit.
