The Chelsea striker has once again been linked with a return to St James' Park. How have Newcastle fans received the rumours?
The 29-year-old has already played on Tyneside before - also while on loan - and could provide the perfect solution to Newcastle's struggles in front of goal.
Regardless of his past fitness worries, Remy has always been a clinical option in front of goal. And he would surely be tempted by the prospect of game time...

As Opta stats show, Remy is in good company when it comes to goals per minute in the Premier League this season. And, with regular game time, his stats could even improve in that regard.
The average would no doubt be dragged down a little but the goals scored column would no doubt increase.
A bit like with Charlie Austin, the benefits of bringing Remy to Newcastle don't need to be described. They are obvious, he could truly help the Magpies - but it's simply about whether the club look past the negatives.
The Frenchman has a fractured relationship with the club, with fans seeing the striker as someone who deems Newcastle below him. But are the majority willing to look past that? Here's a selection of a very popular view...
I'd be happy to get Remy back at the Toon for the rest of the season!! #NUFC— JB (@johnhalbitting) January 4, 2016
I'd have Remy back, quality player with proven goal scoring ability in the Premier League, just what we need at the minute #NUFC— Jimmy (@Jimmy_R7) January 4, 2016
Remy n Mitrovic could be a canny strike partnership, pace and power. #NUFC— Lewis (@Lewis_NUFC99) January 4, 2016
If we are offered Remy, it's a no brainer! Like him, or not, he's a natural finisher. Our strikers might actually learn how to score! #NUFC— David Foster (@Dfozzy1970) January 4, 2016
