Newcastle: Magpies weigh up Cisse-Remy swap

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew is weighing up a swap deal that would see Papiss Cisse move to Queens Park Rangers in exchange for the permanent signing of Loic Remy.

Remy, currently on a season-long loan at St James' Park from the Championship outfit, has impressed in his brief time with the Magpies so far, and the club are desperate to make his loan move permanent.

It had been reported that QPR were ready to increase their asking price for the prolific French striker, though SportsDirect News has learned that Newcastle hope to lower the fee by offloading the misfiring Cisse as part of the deal.

The Senegalese forward has not yet scored in ten Premier League appearances this term, and has struggled to keep up the fine form he showed in his early days at the club.

Remy, in contrast, has an impressive 7 goals in 9 games, and Pardew will be keen to fight off other sides for his signature as he continues to impress.
