Loic Remy admits he's been able to settle quickly at Newcastle United.

The on-loan QPR striker says the big French contingent has made things easy.

"It is almost a French team, a lot of French players, but that is not a bad thing because there is a lot of quality in the French league.

"I have known Ben Arfa for a long time, so I am not surprised by his quality. He can score goals.

"He can give good things for the team, so I try to help him and he can help me to score as well.

"We first met a long time ago, we were at school together, at the same academy in Lyon. He is a funny guy, very friendly and sociable."
