Loic Remy Fails Liverpool Medical – Newcastle Back In?


Some strange things happen in this world – and after everything seemed to be cut and died and Loic Remy would become a Liverpool player after he had agreed terms with the Reds – news is that he has failed his medical.

Loic Remy – will Newcastle try to sign the player?

So where does that leave Remy – and where does that leave Newcastle?

He is still a QPR player, and we suppose if he can get a bigger wage at QPR he will stay there – and the news earlier in the summer was that he wanted to play in London – but that was before Arsenal couldn’t agree terms with the player.

It is being reported by Sky Sports that Liverpool have pulled out of the transfer, due to their concerns about his medical – but other than that we have no idea what it could be.

When he moved to Marseilles for €15M in August of 2010, there was some concern over a heart condition he had, but he eventually passed his medical at Marseilles, the last club he played for before he signed on at QPR about 18 months ago.

Arsenal could not agree  a wage package with the player and the news at Liverpool was that he had to lower his wage demands for the Red to agree a deal.

But it does seem he is after big money – as he was when he decided to join QPR and was willing to play in front of crowds of 17,000 18 months ago, when he could have joined Newcastle, who play in front of massive 52,000 crowds at St. James’ Park.

And the French manager Didier Deschamps didn’t think the move to QPR was a good one for the striker and his International career.

We will have to wait and see what happens – but as we understand – Newcastle’s very decent wage offer is still on the table – but how much we would have to pay QPR for him is another matter – with some reports stating it could mean a £15M transfer fee.

Loic Remy sullied his name among a number of Newcastle fans, when he seemed to not want to play too much for the side towards the end of the season,  to save himself for the World Cup in Brazil.

And so the Remy circus continues.

    Belfast…I’ll build one so you have a place to play under supervision!

    lesh…I heard when we signed Ba one of the problems were no insurance company wanted to insure his knee.

    …and that was why Stoke didn’t want to take the risk

    We should move heaven and earth to sign him! As well as Benteke, Grenier and Vlaar. What a team we would have! Dreaming…

    Hi guys just a quick hit and run here, maybe remy failed a drugs test! The medical was post poned for several days because of some minor complications with paperwork, my guess it was from remys end while he did a quick detox and crossed his fingers. Of coarse i cant prove this lol but it fits lovely, also explains why he passed other medicals. Just thinking outside the box boys. Enjoy your night!

    I am split on this. I suppose we are just a club to him and if someone offered me 30% more to work for them. … If I am honest I would take it.

    The other side of the coin is our other signings have all been happy to sign quickly for us, do we want someone who does not look at us as a more attractive package than a small club in the smoke.

    I have even confused myself now….

    Now what you ask. What do you want, Ed? To try sign him for third time and for third time to be rejected by him? No thanks.

    we should now go all for him, proven already…now we have better team, we are far stronger than last year, with him we will be real threat…after him, just sign one CB and we are really set up for great season

    Rather than getting all excited about LR (who had a crap last 3 months with us by the way)
    We should be praying that the RBD’s don’t hijack our deal with Bony

    It comes from one of their favourite songs
    “In my Liverpool Home”
    The Geordies have modified to

    In my Liverpool Home
    In my Liverpool Home
    I look in a dustbin for something to eat
    I find a dead rat and think its a treat
    In my Liverpool Home

    some versions have slum instead of home

    We obviously thought Remy was worth signing when we took him on loan last season. IMO we should have pressed to turn it into a signing but didn’t follow through enough.

    Now that Liverpool and Arsenal have turned their backs on him we should definitely have another attempt at bringing him back to Newcastle.

    Some will be concerned about the fee and the wages he will demand, but given the failure in his medical I am sure that we can move the costs downward. Not too far down though Mr Ashley!

    Come on, lets have a go and getting him over the line!

    I think QPR will be lucky to get as much money for Remy now and for the those who remember, we got Demba Ba under similar circumstances. But I agree with others here who mention Lacazette, Grenier and Benteke. Personally, I prefer Lukaku, but talk is one thing when Mike Ashley is a cheap skate. Maybe Ashley will see how the ambitious clubs like Spurs and Liverpool are ‘tooling up’ for the new season and decide not to settle for mediocrity by spending money to bring in more quality. You can only hope !

    He failed medical.his demand will definitely diminish.Their is no way QPR ‘ll
    Coup more than 8m.
    Lukaku will go to Everton..
    Liverpool may rekindle their move 4 Bony
    Or Reus,so our chance on PEA is gonna be slim,Benteke highly unlikely..
    what’s left,bench warmers..
    May be that Ferreyra lad or Gignac will
    gonna save us hopefully..

    I would take Remy, but the price has to be right. If we could get for £10m or under it will be good business.
    £15m or above we should pass.

    what a signing remy would be if we sign him up, with our new players around him, he would have more chances and score more goals than last season.

    we should sign Loic Remy if he is availible, very good player, quick, good movement, eye for goal, would be great up top there…we will have plenty of options with him and Gouffran and Riviére…
    ………..Tiote…….Colback……….
    Sissoko…..LDJ…………..Cabella
    ………………Rémy……………………
    Gouffran,Riviére,Anita,Abeid,Pérez still there…stronger definitely with him…
