France international forward Loic Remy, currently on loan at Newcastle United, will consider his long-term future next summer, Sky Sports understands.
Remy, who joined Queens Park Rangers from French giants Olympique de Marseille in a deal worth €10 million in January, has been on scintillating form for the Magpies this season.
The former Lyon youth starlet, 26, has bagged five goals and one assist in seven Premier League appearances for Newcastle in 2013/14, playing a direct role in 6 of the Tynesiders 12 league goals.
Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has already expressed his desire to ink Remy to a permanent deal, but the Frenchman is considering all options ahead of next summer.
“I will look at whatever offers come in – whether they be from Newcastle or whether they be from QPR,” said Remy.
“Then I’ll consider what is best for me and for my future career.
“The most important thing at the moment is playing well at Newcastle, then hopefully trying to get a more regular position in the French squad.
“And then, afterwards, I am still a QPR player. I am just here on loan.”
Newcastle United, fresh off a disappointing 2-1 derby loss to Sunderland, will host Chelsea at St James’ Park on Matchday 10 in the English Premier League next Saturday.
Everton keen on Bruno Martins Indi
According to the Sunday Mirror, Everton have rekindled their interest in highly-rated Feyenoord defender Bruno Martins Indi.
Martins Indi, who made his first-team debut for De Trots van Zuid in the UEFA Europa League against K.A.A. Gent on 19 August 2010, is also the subject of reported interest from Premier League leaders Arsenal, having been dubbed ‘the new Sol Campbell.’
The Feyenoord stopper was close to completing a deadline-day move to Merseyside this summer, but the deal ultimately fell through.
Martins Indi, 21, has scored two goals in 15 international caps for Holland since making his debut against Belgium on 15 August 2012.
The Dutch international could leave De Kuip for as little as £6 million.
Feyenoord boss Ronald Koeman on Martins Indi: “Sometimes you can’t stand in the way of a player who needs a bigger stage to develop into a world-class player. We have two or three players who we may have to sell, and Bruno is one of them.”
In other news, Manchester United manager David Moyes has revealed he could allow Wilfried Zaha to go out on loan if he is unable to “get him a game” in the coming weeks.
Zaha, 20, has not featured for the Red Devils since the Community Shield against FA Cup holders Wigan Athletic.
