Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew has no doubts about the quality of Loic Remy.

Pardew rates on the on-loan QPR striker a "thoroughbred".

He said: "Remy is a thoroughbred. You can tell he's a proper player.

"He looks the part and carries himself well. The players have taken to him, and he's a good guy. We're lucky to have him."
