Marseille forward Andre-Pierre Gignac has dismissed rumours he will be leaving the French club after recent reports linked him to Newcastle. 

The striker, who scored 18 goals for Marseille last season, made his future intentions clear after he became another in a long list of players to be linked with the Toon Army. 

The 27-year-old told L'Equipe: "You think I would say, having turned the tide, that I'm going? You don't know me well.

"I have never wanted to leave. (The links with) Newcastle and the rest, it is all bull****.

"My mind is always on OM and I let Jean-Christophe (Cano, his agent), Vincent (Labrune, OM president) and Jose (Anigo, sporting director) know that," he added. 

A boyhood Marseille fan, Gignac moved to the Ligue 1 club in 2010 after signing from Toulouse. 

However there is some positive news for Newcastle as another French striker looks set to arrive at the club after they completed a deal with QPR for the loan signing of Loic Remy.

The former Marseille man, who turned down a move to the North East just a few months ago, is set to join on a season-long loan after his side were relegated from the Premier League in May.
