Newcastle have agreed a fee and have first-option of signing France international Loic Remy should they wish to next summer, reports the Journal.
Loic Remy has made an instant impact since his loan move to Newcastle, netting a brace against Hull City at the weekend, and narrowly missing out on a hat-trick.
The striker, on a season-long loan from Queens Park Rangers, can make his move permanent in the summer - should both he and the club wish to.
Director of football, Joe Kinnear, spoke about the loan deal in his programme notes for the weekend's game against Hull.
Some have interpreted his comments as reluctantly admitting the player will go back to Loftus Road at the end of the season, should they manage to earn promotion back to the Premier League.
Others seem to think it is more of a mark of respect towards QPR, the player's parent club. They do not feel it would be appropriate to talking about the prospects of a deal for the player outside of the transfer window.
It is also thought that the club loaned Remy in order to see how he would adapt to life in the north east; however, any worries over the Frenchman struggling to fit in have been quashed, thanks to his superb start to the season.
