Remy to join up with QPR squad

The France international saw a proposed move to Liverpool fall through last week but will join QPR ahead of its preseason tour of Ireland, Harry Redknapp has confirmed.
In-demand striker Loic Remy is to join QPR on its preseason trip to the Republic of Ireland, manager Harry Redknapp has confirmed.

The France international looked set to complete a move to Liverpool last week, but the 2013-14 Premier League runner-up pulled the plug on the deal after Remy reportedly failed a medical.

Remy spent the previous campaign on loan at Newcastle and manager Alan Pardew confirmed Wednesday that the club was "monitoring" his situation.

However, it appears that the 27-year-old will remain at Loftus Road, at least for the time being, as Remy will fly out to join the rest of the squad Sunday.

"Loic is coming out on Sunday night to join us for training on Monday, so it will be good to have him with us," Redknapp told the club's official website.

Adel Taarabt's future at Loftus Road has also been the subject of speculation, with the Moroccan having spent the second half of last season on loan with Milan.

The Serie A side is thought to be keen to bring him back to San Siro, but Redknapp insists that no deal has been completed, with the 25-year-old a part of his plans for the coming campaign.

"At this moment he is part of our plans for the season, unless someone comes in and pays the money that the club want," Redknapp added. "Otherwise, he will stay with us and we'll be looking to get him to do his bit for the club this season."
