Newcastle United face competition from Tottenham for QPR striker Loic Remy.

The Evening Chronicle says Toon are facing serious competition for the signature of Remy after Tottenham Hotspur put in an inquiry about the French international last night.

The Magpies had hoped to sign Remy on loan until the end of the season after a summer long struggle to boost their frontline options.

Tottenham have already added Spain star Roberto Soldado from Valencia for a club record £26million.

And with Gareth Bale poised to make the move to Real Madrid for an astronomical fee - with £105million mooted today - Spurs aren't exactly short of cash.
