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."
