QPR are favourites for Marseille striker Loic Remy.

Tottenham and Newcastle United are also interested in the France international.

But the Daily Express says QPR were last night locked in talks with French club Marseille over an £11million deal for Remy.

Manager Harry Redknapp flew to France yesterday to watch Remy in action in the French Cup against Guingamp.

Marseille want to keep QPR misfit Joey Barton on loan, so Redknapp could use that as a bargaining tool.
