Newcastle United are monitoring Loic Remy's situation at QPR.

However, The Journal says United have privately ruled out the prospect of snatching Loic Remy from QPR if the club are relegated at the end of the season.

He has a release clause in his contract will see him depart Loftus Road if the team drop into the Championship but United would not be among the takers if that happened.

Newcastle feel that supporters would not take to him, and were not particularly happy with the conduct of the player when he turned them down in January.
