Loic Remy's £10.5million move from QPR to Liverpool has collapsed.
The France striker was expected to be unveiled as Brendan Rodgers' latest summer signing but the Reds have pulled out of the transfer at the 11th hour.
There has been no official comment on why the deal won't be completed but it is believed to be related to a problem with his medical.
Remy, who scored 14 goals on loan at Newcastle last season, flew to Boston last week to link up with the squad on their tour of America.
Personal terms were agreed and he was set to be handed the iconic number seven shirt left vacant following Luis Suarez's move to Barcelona.
The 27-year-old underwent the usual medical tests before going to New York after the club granted him a few days off.
GetWestLondon reported on Friday that there was a delay in announcing his signing down to a minor paperwork issue but it appears that Liverpool were in fact seeking a second opinion over a medical issue.
And on the back of that advice it appears they then took the decision not to proceed with the transfer.
It is understood there is no chance of the Remy deal being resurrected and the Frenchman will remain with QPR, who today returned from their pre-season tour to Germany - at least for now.
