The Frenchman netted four times in 19 appearances in the Premier League for the Magpies last season.
The 26-year-old told the Shields Gazette: "I hope to score more goals this season. Goals are important, whether they're special or not.
"I like to score from two yards, 10 yards or 20 yards. It doesn't matter. I am happy to score from two yards.
"The most important thing is to score for the team. It doesn't matter if they are special or not, I want to score for this club. When you score, you can win. When you don't score, you can't win."
Newcastle travel to Aston Villa this afternoon.
