Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew is pleased with their business for Loic Remy.

Pardew insisted that the deal that brought Remy to the club, albeit on loan from QPR, is something worth shouting about.

He said: "I think in some ways the Remy deal has been a bit unfair.

"He's injured. He would have given us a different reflection.

"I don't care how you weigh it up, it's a great deal, for any club to get Remy on the financial deal we did."
