Marseille coach Elie Baup has suggested that Newcastle target Loic Remy might stay at the Ligue 1 club.
"For a year, every transfer window, we have been talking about his departure," Baup told La Provence.
"But he is still there. Maybe he still will be in the summer."
Baup also dismissed claims the striker is being negatively affected by the constant speculation about his future.
"As this is the third transfer window where we are talking about his departure, he does not focus on it.
"He seeks primarily to regain his touch. The physical side, he has found. He must now partner that with the co-ordination of movements and feeling of the game."
