Numerous sources are reporting that the 26-year-old has flown to London for talks with the Premier League strugglers, moments before he was due for a medical at Newcastle.

The Ligue 1 side confirmed on Sunday that they had accepted a bid from Alan Pardew's side for Remy, believed to be just over £8million.

But QPR boss Harry Redknapp, who made a move for the Frenchman while manager of Tottenham Hotspur, appears to have been successful in convincing Remy to head South over North.
