Loic Remy: Said to be favouring a move to London

The striker was expected to travel to Newcastle for talks after they agreed a fee in the region of £8.3million with Marseille at the weekend.

But it has now emerged Remy, 26, is instead negotiating with Harry Redknapp's QPR and he is expected to undergo a medical at the West London club on Tuesday.

Marseille have confirmed Remy is keeping his options open, as sporting director Jose Anigo told RTL television: "We at OM reached an agreement with Newcastle but we also talked with other English clubs.

"We gave them a working basis and it remains up to Loic to choose the club he prefers in terms of their structure or sporting plans.

"He is currently in England and is speaking with some clubs. Everyone talks about Newcastle but it is not just Newcastle, because he is talking with other clubs.

"We have to remain cautious. We have done our job and players and agents must do theirs. Nothing is done."

Redknapp is also believed to have approached West Bromwich Albion with offers for striker Peter Odemwingie and defender Jonas Olsson as he looks to strengthen his squad for a relegation dogfight.

The QPR boss was in Rennes on Saturday ahead of a possible bid for Yann M'Vila, but Djibril Cisse is expected to be told he can leave Loftus Road before the month is out.

et again Barcelona try to convince the world that they only play the most virtuous of football. I've never seen a team so willing and able to dish out lumps but feel so self-righteous that no opposition player should ever have the audacity to tackle them.
