Loic Remy had seemed a certainty to be joining Liverpool this summer, but the Anfield club pulled the plug on the deal at the eleventh hour, citing problems with the player’s medical. TalkSPORT reports that the Northern-Irish manager will not be interested in revisiting the situation at any time this summer.
Remy, who is currently a Queens Park Rangers player, is thought to be seeking a move to a Champion’s League competitor in order to raise his profile. Rangers themselves are thought to be seeking to sell the player on during this transfer window in order to raise their funds. However, despite massive interest from Liverpool, a deal was not able to be reached as there appeared to be problems with Remy’s medical examination, after he had flown out to the Reds’ pre-season tour in America to undertake it.
‘It is unfortunate. We pulled out of the deal as a club and it is something that we won’t be revisited,’ said Rogers, ‘So it’s disappointing, of course, for the player, however that was our view at the end of the process.’
The Merseyside club are likely to continue their search for another striker over the next month, having sold Luis Suarez to Barcelona at an earlier point in the summer. Remy had been a prime target to replace the Uruguayan, but it was not to be.
‘now we move on and I am sure the player will too,’ said Rogers, as he drew a line under the ongoing situation.
