Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew said: "Remy is a player who has been on our radar for a while and we are delighted to bring him to the Club.

"He is a player who I am sure will excite our fans. He has flair, hard work and commitment, and is going to bring a talent, energy and quality to St. James' Park that our supporters will enjoy.

"Remy has great ideas when the ball comes to him, and along with Siem de Jong is going to improve an area where we definitely needed some help."
