The supposed move by Queens Park Rangers striker Loic Remy to Liverpool fell through, as the Frenchman reportedly failed the medical.
He spent his 2013/14 season with Newcastle United after QPR failed to retain top-flight status, tallying a decent 14 goals along with 3 assists.

"Reports have come out that he failed a medical. That's not possible. He is a very fit lad, there has to be another reason," said Hoops boss Harry Redknapp.
"He had a stringent one here, one at Marseille and at Newcastle and with France before the World Cup. You couldn't meet a fitter lad."
The 27-year-old moved to Loftus Road in January 2013 for a suggested fee of £8million, as part of Rednkapp's attempt to keep the Rs, who were then at the bottom of the table, in the Premier League.
Nevertheless, the English mentor sees the failed deal as a blessing in disguise.
"Their loss is our gain - we've got a fantastic striker," he added.
"I said last year he was capable of scoring 20 goals in the Premier League. That's what we now want him to do for us."
