QPR chief executive Philip Beard is keen to keep Loic Remy at Loftus Road – but he admits the Rs may have to sell the striker before the new campaign begins.

Remy joined QPR from Marseille for £8million in January, scoring six goals in 14 matches.

The Frenchman is a target for Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew, but the Magpies may struggle to match Remy’s £75,000-a-week wages and Harry Redknapp is keen to keep him.

However, with QPR needing to further reduce their wage bill after least season’s relegation from the Premier League, Beard conceded that the club may be forced to listen to offers.

Beard said: “It’s realistic that everybody with a contract will stay. If clubs come in and it’s the right deal for QPR and the player, we’ll talk about them going somewhere else.

“Loic Remy is like everyone with a contract. He’s a great character, and if we have him playing for us in the Championship he’ll score you a lot of goals, but if something happens we’ll look at it.”
