Loic Remy: Not going to be fit for the weekend

Loic Remy: Not going to be fit for the weekend

The France international has been conspicuous by his absence through a calf injury in recent weeks as the Magpies have slipped to consecutive heavy Barclays Premier League defeats by Everton, Southampton and Manchester United.

Pardew had hoped his leading scorer would be available for this weekend's trip to Stoke after returning to training, but the 52-year-old will have to remain patient for a little longer.

He said:"He [Remy] won't make this game, but we'd like to think he will make the next game."

There is better news, however, of goalkeeper Tim Krul, who could yet be available at the Britannia Stadium after returning to training after a knee problem.

But full-back Mathieu Debuchy, who has a groin injury, is not expected to be back on the training pitch until next week and midfielder Moussa Sissoko is still battling a hamstring strain.
