Newcastle United could possibly admit defeat in attempting to sign striker Loic Remy on a permanent deal after scouting possible replacements. Remy is on loan from Championship side Queens Park Rangers and has scored 13 goals in 23 league appearances for the Magpies this season, reportedly attracting the interest of Arsenal due to his impressive performances.googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(“div-gpt-ad-1389116196215-0”); });With Newcastle today linked with Red Bull Salzburg striker Sadio Mane in the Sunday People as well as a number of other possibilities, the north east club could be considering the possibility of not retaining the 27-year-old past the end of the season. Another issue is money – Newcastle boss Alan Pardew admitted that finances were equally as part of the situation as ambition and, with the club currently mid-table after a poor run of form after selling arguably their best player, Yohan Cabaye, to Paris Saint-Germain, that could prove a stumbling block. On top of that, Pardew has been the cause of further negative press after headbutting Hull City’s David Meyler on Saturday, completely overshadowing Newcastle’s 4-1 win at the KC Stadium.
