Newcastle United have signed Loic Remy on a season-long loan deal from Championship side Queens Park Rangers.
Remy said in a statement: "I'm very happy to be a Newcastle player. It will be a huge honour to play for such a big club.
"I was very flattered by the club's interest in me back in January and also very happy that they showed interest in me again this summer.
"The Premier League is the best league in the world and that's where I want to play.
"I am very motivated this year to get into the World Cup squad for my country and I know in order to do that I need to have a big season and a successful campaign with Newcastle United."
Newcastle's director of football Joe Kinnear added: "The need for us to strengthen up front was a priority and I have been working very hard to secure one of our targets in this position.
"Now we have him I'm sure he'll be a huge success for us. I know he's hungry for goals and is absolutely committed to helping us achieve success this season."
