Loic Remy joins QPR squad in tour of Ireland after move to Liverpool falls through
French striker failed a medical at Anfield and is now likely to stay in west London
Loic Remy has joined his Queens Park Rangers team-mates on their tour of Ireland after his move to Liverpool fell through.
The French striker had agreed an £8.5m move to Anfield but failed a medical at the club. He now looks set to remain part of Harry Redknapp's squad after Alan Pardew said he "doubts" Remy will return to Newcastle.
Remy had travelled to the US to finalise a deal with the Reds but last night arrived in Ireland to join the QPR squad.
The 27-year-old, who impressed for the Toon last season with 14 Premier League goals, is now in contention to play in the pre-season friendly against Athlone Town on Tuesday night.
Redknapp will be happy to welcome Remy back into his squad for next season as he looks to find the goals to keep the newly-promoted club in the Premier League this season. QPR manager Harry Redknapp will welcome Remy back into the squad
Charlie Austin and Bobby Zamora are the only other first-team strikers Redknapp currently has in his squad.
Newcastle manager Alan Pardew told Sky Sports: "We've not really had much contact with Loic and I don't see that evolving, if I'm honest.
"Whatever happened at Liverpool is irrelevant really, because he's had plenty of chances to come to us."
