Remy Sets Sights On Villa Goal

Loic Remy is confident he will open his Newcastle United account sooner rather than later, as the Magpies prepare to face Aston Villa

Loic Remy is confident he will open his Newcastle United account sooner rather than later, as the Magpies prepare to face Aston Villa on Saturday.

The summer signing, who arrived on a season-long loan deal from Queens Park Rangers in August, made his United debut as a second half substitute against Fulham a fortnight ago.

His impressive cameo was followed by an international break, which has given Remy the chance to not only improve his fitness but also get to know his new teammates and fit in to Newcastle's style of play.

And now, as the French international striker bids to start at Villa Park in the Premier League this weekend, he is keen to find the back of the net.

"We've put some good moves together on the training pitch and are getting a good feeling of the way we play," he told nufc.co.uk of his week on the training pitch.

"It's still early days so there's still a few things that need working on but I feel like I have settled in quickly and everyone has helped me with that.

"I hope to score as soon as possible, maybe against Aston Villa. I didn't have too much time on the pitch against Fulham but as I get fitter I would hope to play more and then would expect myself to score goals in this team.

"Having said that, it doesn't matter who scores - the most important thing is that we pick up points, get some wins and do well over the whole season."
