Alan Shearer believes Loic Remy may have snubbed Newcastle for financial reasons.

Magpies boss Alan Pardew lined the France international up to replace departed top-scorer Demba Ba, only to get gazumped by Harry Redknapp at QPR. Quite why Remy should choose QPR ahead of Newcastle is a mystery to Shearer, and one which the former England skipper can only reasonably explain came down to cash.

"I am surprised to see Remy go to QPR instead of Newcastle," said Shearer. "I would have a good guess that financial things had a part to play. Harry (Redknapp) will tell you a different story but whilst I love Harry and I hope QPR get out of it, I find it hard to say he chose them over Newcastle."
