Pardew: Remy and Newcastle are a good fit

18 April 2014 09:19

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew believes he can keep in-demand striker Loic Remy because of how well he has settled at St James' Park.

The France international is approaching the end of his season-long loan from QPR and a return of 13 goals from 23 Premier League appearances in 2013-14 has sparked speculation over his future.

Remy has beeen linked him with a cluster of clubs in England and Europe, but Pardew is confident of being able to persuade the 27-year-old to commit to Newcastle on a long-term basis.

"I think we have got a chance of keeping him and because I am a positive person, I would like to think it is a good chance," Pardew told the Northern Echo ahead of Saturday's home game against Swansea City, which should mark Remy's return from a calf injury.

"I just think he has had a good year here.

"Sometimes, you can be a good fit at a club, and he is a good fit here.

"He fits in well, and performs that 'number nine' role. It wears well on him."
