Loic Remy focused on short-term goals

Tottenham Hotspur striker target Loic Remy insists he isn’t thinking about the speculation over his future and is concentrating on life on loan at Newcastle United.

The French international forward joined the Toon on loan from QPR this summer after Harry Redknapp’s side slumped to relegation last season.

And, the 26-year-old has been in top form at St. James’ Park this season, scoring five goals in just seven league appearances for Alan Pardew’s side thus far.

It’s led to paper talk over his long-term future with the Magpies, and reports in The Daily Mirror claim Newcastle could look to secure a long-term deal for £6million in January.

However, the former Marseille forward – who was linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window – insists that his focus is solely on scoring goals in the next couple of months.

"I am really enjoying it at Newcastle but what happens next I don't know. For the moment the question of staying beyond my loan period is not in my head,” he said, according to The Daily Star.

"It is a good question but we have time to decide."

Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas has been relatively light in attack this season, with summer signing Roberto Soldado supported by England forward Jermain Defoe.

However, Emmanuel Adebayor has fallen out of favour with the Tottenham Hotspur boss, and is reportedly set to make an exit from White Hart Lane in 2014.

Javier Hernandez is a player tipped to replace the Togolese international in north London, but given Remy's seeming availability, then it's hard to write off Spurs as a possible destination.
