Steven Taylor says he is delighted with Newcastle United’s loan swoop for Queens Park Rangers striker Loic Remy.

The France international, who was a January target for the Magpies, completed a temporary switch to the St James’ Park outfit on Tuesday following QPR’s relegation to the Championship last term.

Remy will be expected to fill the void left by Chelsea’s Demba Ba, and Taylor reckons the former Marseille striker will add something different to Newcastle’s side.

“He adds something different with the pace he has got and the strength he has got,” Taylor told Sky Sports News.

“We are delighted he has signed and we are looking forward to seeing him play.”

Taylor insisted Newcastle are ready to make a positive start to their Premier League campaign after a disappointing campaign last term.

“I think us as players have come back in good nick and obviously we are all raring to go,” added Taylor.

“All us players want to do is get down to business and when that first game comes along against Manchester City on Monday night we will be raring to go.”
