Newcastle manager Alan Pardew does not believe he could have done any more to bring France striker Loic Remy to St James' Park.

The 26-year-old joined Barclays Premier League bottom side QPR on Wednesday after the Magpies had led the way in the race to secure the frontman's signature. Remy travelled to Tyneside last Sunday for continued talks and a medical after Newcastle agreed an £8million fee with Marseille but the striker opted for a move to West London instead.

"It was a little strange as we had obviously put a lot of work in and made the club an offer that was accepted, a good offer," Pardew said. "We made a fantastic offer to the player and then he didn't arrive. This club is on a financial footing that is strong, but we're still not going to pay silly money. We're going to pay what is correct and that is what we offered."
