Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew wants to sign permanently on-loan QPR striker Loic Remy.

R's boss Harry Redknapp said earlier this week he would be happy to see Remy join the Magpies permanently at the end of the season and does not expect the forward to return to Loftus Road.

"I wish he had joined in January," he said.

"I still remember the night clearly when we thought we had done the deal.

"We had a nice glass of wine, gave ourselves a nice, hearty, warm handshake and the next day he wasn't there.

"But sometimes in life you have to wait. If you wait long enough it comes around.

"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.

"It was interesting to read Harry Redknapp's comments that he probably won't be going back, but we will have to see."
