Marseille sporting director Jose Anigo has hinted that Loic Remy could be sold after Newcastle were strongly linked with the striker.

The 26-year-old Remy has been hampered by injuries this season, limiting him to just one goal, but is reportedly on the Magpies' radar as they seek a replacement for Demba Ba after selling him to Chelsea.

"Some English clubs are looking at our players and have not yet come knocking on the door," Anigo told L'Equipe.

"It will come. The only window of opportunity at the moment is for Loic Remy, if a big club comes for him and he is interested. We will see, but otherwise no one will go.

"His succession of injuries has hampered him, and saw him miss the Euros. But I think he is back. I can see in training there is a renewed confidence.

"But if he left, we still have a strong attack with (Andre-Pierre) Gignac and Jordan Ayew. We are well armed."
