'I hope to score as soon as possible' - Remy eyeing goals against Aston Villa

The France international, on loan from QPR, says he is settling into life at St James' Park quickly and is keen to get off the mark for his new club when they travel to Villa Park
Loic Remy is confident he can open his Newcastle United account when the Magpies travel to Aston Villa on Saturday.

The Frenchman moved to St James' Park on loan from QPR last month and made his debut in a short appearance against Fulham, a match which saw the Tyneside outfit pick up their first league win of the season.

Having adapted quickly to life at Newcastle, Remy is keen to help the Magpies continue their improved run of form when the side take on Paul Lambert's young Villans.

"We've put some good moves together on the training pitch and are getting a good feeling of the way we play," he told the club's official website.

"It's still early days so there's still a few things that need working on but I feel like I have settled in quickly and everyone has helped me with that.

"I hope to score as soon as possible, maybe against Aston Villa.

"I didn't have too much time on the pitch against Fulham but as I get fitter I would hope to play more and then would expect myself to score goals in this team.

"Having said that, it doesn't matter who scores - the most important thing is that we pick up points, get some wins and do well over the whole season."

Remy opted against a move to Newcastle to join QPR in January, but his six goals in 14 games could not prevent the west London side's relegation to the Championship.
