Marseille striker Loic Remy is set to turn down Newcastle and join the Premier League’s bottom club QPR instead.
The French international is understood to be in London having a medical ahead of an £8.3million move to the Hoops.
Remy was set to discuss a move to the North East, but now looks set for a move to London instead.
This will come as bitter blow to the Magpies, as they wanted Remy as a replacement for top goal scorer Demba Ba.
QPR are also believed to have tabled bids for West Brom duo Jonas Olsson and Peter Odemwingie. QPR boss Harry Redknapp is also interested in signing Rennes midfielder Yann M’Vila.
Swansea have strengthened their squad with the loan signing of winger Roland Lamah from La Liga outfit Osasuna. The Belgium international has signed an 18-month loan deal with an option of a permanent deal.
Sunderland have brought in Senegal international defender Kader Mangane on-loan until the end of the season with a view to a permanent deal taking place in the summer. The 29 year-old arrived from Saudi club Al-Hilal.
A host of teams are chasing the signature of young Australian midfielder Toni Rogic. The 20 year-old Central Mariners Coast star is highly-rated and is currently on trial with SPL giants Celtic. However, the likes of Fulham, Reading and QPR are also believed to be interested in the highly rated starlet.
Norwegian defender Vegard Forren is also attracting the interest of a host of top flight English sides. The Molde defender looked set for a trial at Liverpool, but then Premier League rivals Southampton put in a bid to sign the 24 year-old.
Southampton have one of the worse defensive records in the Premier League and it looks like boss Nigel Adkins is trying to rectify the problem by bringing in the solid young centre-back.
Will Loic Remy make it in the Premier League?
