The France international was expected to complete an £8.5million move to Anfield from Queens Park Rangers, but saw the deal collapse after undergoing a medical.

QPR have been left baffled by the breakdown in talks, with Harry Redknapp of the opinion that Remy is fighting fit.

That is also the opinion of those at Newcastle who worked with the 27-year-old during a season-long loan spell in 2013/14.

Should the door be opened for Remy to return to St James' Park, Pardew hopes he will be ready to step in.

He is, however, aware that a man who netted 14 Premier League goals last season continues to generate interest from clubs across Europe.

Pardew said in the Evening Chronicle: "I am surprised about what's happening with Loic because I thought he was signing for Liverpool and that door was slammed shut.

"I didn't expect that, and we certainly had no problem with Loic during his time with us.

"So we shall monitor it as we go along."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
