Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew has hinted a permanent deal for on-loan QPR striker Loic Remy is no certainty.

Tottenham and West Ham United are also interested in Remy.

Pardew said: "We are really pleased to have him, I thought he was excellent. Not just his two goals, but his work-rate and everything he did was competent.

"He is a player on our books and we are pleased to have him, but at the moment he is a QPR player."
