Alan Pardew believes that Newcastle United will be in the running to sign Loic Remy permanently this summer.

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has insisted that he will not give up on the possibility of signing Loic Remy on a permanent basis.

Remy's performances for the club during a season-long loan spell from Queens Park Rangers have reportedly attracted interest from a number of teams, but Pardew believes that there is a chance the French forward will sign for the Magpies in the summer.

"I think we've got a chance of keeping him and because I'm a positive person, I'd like to think it's a good chance," the Newcastle boss told reporters.

"He's had a good year here and is a good fit for this club.

"He wears the famous number nine shirt and it wears well on him."

Remy is expected to be involved against Swansea City on Saturday afternoon.
