Loic Remy says he is enjoying the opportunity to shine at a “great club” like Newcastle United.

The France international has scored five goals in his last three appearances for the Magpies following a move to St James’ Park on a season-long loan switch from Queens Park Rangers.

Remy, who scored twice in a 2-1 win at Cardiff, came close to joining Newcastle in the January before eventually sealing a move to Loftus Road, and the striker is glad to repay Alan Pardew’s faith in him.

“I have the opportunity to play in a great club, where I can express myself fully. This can only benefit me,” Remy said.

“I have worked very hard to get back to my best. Last winter, the coach already had spotted me, even though I chose to go to QPR. He trusted me again this summer.”

Meanwhile, Newcastle boss Pardew admits he felt sorry for Remy’s team-mate Papiss Cissé after the striker’s poor run continued at Cardiff City.

“I felt sorry for Papiss at Cardiff [on Saturday],” Pardew said. “I thought two or three things could have dropped for him during the game but they didn’t so, hopefully, he can score when he is away with Senegal. That would do him the world of good.

“They have a massive qualifier against the Ivory Coast and it’s one I’m looking forward to watching.”
