The French striker has moved to St James' Park from QPR on a season-long loan, but will miss out when the Magpies start their Premier League campaign at Manchester City on 19th August, which you can see live on Sky Sports 1.

"It's just a strain, but it's an area that is stopping him from running at the moment," Pardew told the Newcastle Chronicle. "We need to get some work into him.

"There is no chance of him making Man City. Whether there is a chance of him playing against West Ham in the next game is something we will have to suck and see as we go along."

Pardew also hinted that Newcastle are looking to reinforce their forward line before the end of the current transfer window.

He added: "We look like we need a bit of improvement at the top of the pitch. We have Remy in and unfortunately he's injured, so that's still an area we need to improve on.

"I think there is a lot of players still to move in this window. I think we will be involved in that."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
