Pardew realistic on Loic Remy future

Alan Pardew admits he is resigned to the likelihood of Newcastle missing out on a permanent deal for Loic Remy, who he has compared to Johan Cruyff and Dennis Bergkamp.

Loic Remy fired home a late winner for Newcastle versus Aston Villa.

Ryder: Make Remy the future

Remy, 27, currently on loan from Queens Park Rangers, produced another impressive performance on Sunday as he scored an injury-time winner against Aston Villa, leading Pardew to make the comparison with two of football's most iconic attackers.

The France international is set to return to QPR at the end of the season, and the Magpies boss is realistic that his form means it is highly unlikely he will stay at Newcastle beyond the summer, with the likes of Arsenal recently being linked with the striker.

"I think that's fairly obvious," Pardew told reporters when asked whether Newcastle faced a battle to keep Remy. "Somebody just said to me the game seemed a little bit slower when he was on the ball and I think when you get a quality player that's what they can do.

"Players like Cruyff and Bergkamp, they can slow the game down and he can do that.

"He's going to be hot property, he's going to get a lot of press tomorrow and I'm going to leave him out of the next XI."

Pardew headed into the Aston Villa clash with rumours circulating about his future following four games without a win, although he admits he took the reports with a pinch of salt.

"I was little bit happier after it [Remy’s goal] went in than I was prior to it going in," he said. "I thought the media have been a bit miserable this week. A couple of the reports were definitely aimed at putting me under pressure which I thought was a little bit unfair.

"There's pressure enough in this job without having a couple of stories that were untrue so it was a little bit of a smile to them too -- cheer up, let's move on."
