Newcastle United's only significant summer signing, Loic Remy, is determined to repay his new team for their faith in him despite his arrest earlier in the year.
The Frenchman, who is on a season-long loan from QPR, was arrested along with two other men on suspicion of rape, but was rebailed on Monday until November.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "I can confirm today that three men who were arrested on the morning of Wednesday 15th May, aged 26, 23 and 22 on suspicion of rape have now been rebailed to appear on 21st November 2013."
The former Marseille man, who strongly denies the allegations, made his Newcastle debut as a second-half substitute against Fulham at the weekend and played a role in setting up Hatem Ben Arfa's winning strike.
Having previously turned down the Magpies in favour of QPR back in January, the 26-year-old is eager to show his worth over the season.
"I am really happy and grateful to this club for the fact that even though I didn’t come here firstly – they came back for me," he told The Chronicle.
“They have shown a lot of interest in me. I really need to repay them for that by going out there and doing my very best on the pitch. I need to repay them by doing well on this loan.
"We’ll see what happens after that but for now I am focused on doing as well as I can for Newcastle.
"This is a club with a big history and a club in the Premier League that has a fantastic heritage.
“I want to leave my own personal mark on this club. I'm going to go out there, have a great season and score as many goals as I can.”
