With QPR having returned to the Premier League, there is a chance that France international Remy could be drafted back into their plans.

He was allowed to spend the 2013/14 campaign on loan at Newcastle United after failing to keep top flight football at Loftus Road and has expressed a desire to join a club competing in the Champions League.

Remy has already knocked back a number of approaches, though, with any move having to be right for both him and QPR.

If no suitable offer arrives, Fernandes would be delighted to retain the services of a proven goalscorer at domestic and international level.

He said of a player who continues to be heavily linked with the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur: “The decision has to be fairly soon. We don’t want to be without a striker.

“My position on Remy is that I’m not going to wait until two days before the transfer window [closes].

“I signed Loic and he did a great job for QPR and Newcastle.

“I don’t think he would only stay for the money. He wants to be France’s top striker and believes in his ability.

“I’d like to keep Remy and I think I’ve made that clear, but he has to want to stay.

“He’s turned down some clubs. Some clubs have come in and he’s said, ‘No, I’d rather stay at QPR’.”

Fernandes has also revealed that Adel Taarabt could still have a future at QPR.

The enigmatic playmaker spent time with Fulham and AC Milan last season, but remains under contract at Loftus Road and may have a role to play under Harry Redknapp.

Fernandes added: “I would like Adel to stay because he’s had a great history with us.

“He’s never done it in the Premier League. He’s done it in flashes, although he is one of the best footballers I’ve seen, but it’s up to him.

“I think it would be great if he stayed. But if there’s one message I want to get out there, it’s that I want players who want to play for us.”

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
