Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew knows they face a battle to keep hold of Loic Remy.

There is no guarantee that parent club QPR will want to sell, especially if they secure an immediate return to the top flight.

Pardew said: "He is going to be hot property and will get a lot of headlines.

"His goals could make it harder to buy him. Perhaps I will leave him out of the next 11 games!"
