Newcastle have no plans to renew their interest in QPR striker Loic Remy if Rangers are forced to sell due to relegation.
The R's are fighting for their lives at the wrong end of the Premier League table and are already making contingency plans in case they lose their scrap against the drop.
With plenty of high earners on their wage bill, Rangers could be open to cut price bids for some of their star assets, including Remy.
The France international was heavily linked with a move to Newcastle during the January transfer window, the Toon agreeing a £10million deal with Marseille before the striker opted to move to QPR instead.
While Newcastle are keen to strengthen their front line during the summer, they have no plans to renew their interest in the 26-year-old having been snubbed once.
Alan Pardew is instead believed to be interested in pursuing St Etienne's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has admitted he would be open to a move to a Premier League club this summer.
