QPR striker Charlie Austin remains on Newcastle's radar as the club continues to plan its three-transfer-window recruitment strategy.

The Magpies monitored Austin's situation throughout the summer as it appeared his days at Loftus Road were numbered in the wake of QPR's relegation from the top flight.

Asked about Austin, head coach Steve McClaren said: "He has been on Newcastle's radar from the second half of last season and during the summer, and he will stay on the radar, definitely."

Newcastle teenager Olivier Kemen has completed a permanent move to French club Lyon.

The 19-year-old midfielder, who joined the Magpies from Metz during the summer of 2013, has returned to his native country for an undisclosed fee.

Kemen, a youngster purchased for his potential, was a regular at Under-21 and youth level, but did not make a first team appearance during his time on Tyneside.
