Reports have suggested that the French international is in advanced negotiations with the Magpies, who appear set to be active in the transfer market when the window re-opens in January.

The prospective addition of Remy - who joined Marseille from Nice in 2008 - would be a welcome boost to a side that have lost six of their last seven Premier League encounters, and the 25-year-old did not rule out a switch to the North-East.
He told Sky Sports: "They [Newcastle] are a very good team, they are a big club with good players, very good fans and a nice stadium that is always full.
"The window opens in January, and there will be speculation from now until the window closes - if I have to leave then all parties must be happy. I have a contract so let's wait and see what happens."
