Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that Liverpool have pulled out of a deal to sign Loic Remy but refused to clarify why.
Liverpool have completed the £20million signing of Croatia centre-back Dejan Lovren from Southampton.
James Beattie has been appointed manager of Accrington Stanley.
The former England striker replaces Leam Richardson, who left the League Two club at the end of the season to join the Chesterfield coaching staff.
It is 35-year-old Beattie's first job in management and comes just six months after he joined Stanley as a player.
It is not yet clear whether he intends to continue playing.
