Spurs have been handed a sizeable boost in the race to sign striker Loic Remy, with reporting that the Frenchman is set to turn down the offer of a permanent move to Newcastle. 

26-year-old Remy is currently on a season-long loan with the Magpies from Championship outfit Queens Park Rangers and has sufficiently impressed for Alan Pardew's side having netted five goals in five Premier League games during the opening stages of the 2013/14 campaign.

So impressed have Toon fans been with their new recruit, rumours have increasingly intensified that Newcastle are eager to sign him on a full-time basis in January.

However, according to, the former Marseille star is getting ready to reject the chance to make his switch to St James' Park permanent when the transfer window re-opens for business in the new year in order to keep all of his options open ahead of the summer market.

Aside from Newcastle, Andre Villas-Boas' Spurs are also said to be interested in securing the services of the French international and could now be considered frontrunners for Remy with the same aforementioned source asserting their belief that the former Nice frontman is keen on a return to London. 

Earlier this week, Remy appeared rather coy with regards to his future and refused to commit his long-term future to Newcastle.

"I am really enjoying it at Newcastle, but what happens next I don't know," he was quoted by the Daily Express on Tuesday.

"For the moment the question of staying beyond my loan period is not in my head - it is a good question, but we have time to decide."
