Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew continues to 'monitor' Loic Remy's situation after a move to Liverpool broke down.

We're no clearer as to why Remy's move to Liverpool broke down, with Harry Redknapp denying claims the striker failed a medical, but for now he remains at QPR. That could change if Alan Pardew formally renews interest in a player who scored 14 goals for Newcastle during last season's impressive loan spell. If Remy can prove his fitness then he would be a fine signing for any Premier League club

Harry Redknapp has urged Adel Taarabt to 'get himself in shape', if the playmaker wants to have a future at Queens Park Rangers.

Taarabt continues to live up to his reputation. While blessed with huge amount of talent, the midfielder has never been able to settle at a club, often falling foul of management, team-mates and fans. Taarabt spent the first half of last season on loan at Fulham before taking in the second half of the campaign with AC Milan, but he reported to QPR for pre-season in bad shape. Redknapp revealed the midfielder was unfit and has yet to train with his London club, so it will be some time before he sees Premier League action this season. Don't rule out a move away before the transfer window shuts at the end of August.

Liverpool have pulled out of a deal to sign QPR striker Loic Remy.

While no official statement has been released, the majority of media outlets are reporting that Remy failed his medical, leaving Liverpool no choice but to withdraw their £8.5million offer. However, Sky Sports have suggested that Fabio Borini's refusal to move to Sunderland on a permanent basis is the real sticking point, with Brendan Rodgers unable to move for another striker when he already has Borini, Daniel Sturridge and Ricky Lambert in his squad. Whatever the reason, the collapse leaves Remy's career in limbo.

Former West Ham United midfielder Jack Collison is hoping to make the most of his trial with Queens Park Rangers.

Collison has battled a chronic knee problem causing him to miss much of the past two season and he was released by the Hammers back in May, but QPR could offer him a lifeline. The 25-year-old midfielder is training with Harry Redknapp's squad during in pre-season and he hopes some good performances could earn him a short-term contract to help relaunch his career.

QPR have signed Cardiff City defender Steven Caulker for an undisclosed fee.

While the deal is undisclosed the majority of media outlets are reporting a four-year-deal and a fee in the region of £8.5million. The 22-year-old defender leaves relegated Cardiff to join up with his former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp, and instantly boosts the chances of Queens Park Rangers avoiding relegation this season. England international (with one cap so far) Caulker will form a new partnership alongside recently signed veteran Rio Ferdinand, and should provide value in the Yahoo fantasy game having been one of the most productive defensive point scorers last season.

Queens Park Rangers are interested in Cardiff defender Steven Caulker who is up for grabs after Cardiff were relegated last season.

Caulker is a quality defender and a great leader who captained Cardiff last season. Cardiff manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already acknowledged that Caulker and Campbell Frazier are on the way out and QPR are reportedly in the hunt for Caulker. QPR have signed veteran center-back Rio Ferdinand but it's unknown if he can stay healthy and a defender of Caulker's quality will certainly help their chances of avoiding relegation. If Caulker ends on a team where he will be a starting defender, he will have good fantasy value as he's very active in chasing down players and getting in front of the ball to block shots.

Rio Ferdinand has taken to Twitter to announce that his move to Queens Park Rangers has become official today.

Here's hoping that the QPR Board drove down the cost of the pay packet before signing on the dotted line but Harry Redknapp has another former big name for his collection in the form of Rio Ferdinand. The former best defender in the Premier League struggled to make a contribution at Old Trafford last season and was out of contract as a result. If used judiciously by Redknapp maybe he can be a valuable third center back but it seems likely he's being paid like a starter. Aren't there better places 'arry could have used this money?

Loic Remy has been rumored to be an Arsenal target in years past as well as all summer this year and that possibility resurfaced today with word of Arsenal being ready to trip the Frenchman's £8m buy-out clause.

With Alexis Sanchez and Mathieu Debuchy seemingly wrapped up, Arsene Wenger is moving on to address other needs. A move to provide cover/competition for Olivier Giroud in the form of French international teammate Loic Remy is apparently Wenger's next move. The forward has expressed an interest and his £8m buy-out clause means that the transfer fee from QPR won't be much of an issue. The next priorities will be to sort out Thomas Vermaelen and secure a holding midfielder, likely from Morgan Schneiderlein, Lars Bender, and Sami Khedira. It could be quite a summer at the Emirates if all that comes to fruition.

QPR has been a home for big name veterans with big salaries on the decline in recent years and they look to be considering the addition of another in free agent Rio Ferdinand.

Rio Ferdinand struggled mightily in his final season at Manchester United despite not being asked to start every week. Queens Park Rangers were relegated two seasons ago with similarly big names approaching the end of their careers. Despite those two things, QPR and Harry Redknapp are talking to Ferdinand as the Rs prepare to return to the Premier League. If he can turn back the clock a year or two it is a solid acquisition, if the injury issues continue then they may find themselves in similar financial straights after another relegation.

Sky Sports are reporting that Spurs have triggered Loic Remy's QPR release clause but that the forward is holding out for a move to Arsenal after the World Cup.

The Arsenal deal had better come to fruition. If Remy ends up at Spurs after putting them off in hopes of becoming a Gunner, it's hard to see the Spurs faithful giving him anything but a rough time of it. If he scores like he did for Newcastle in the first half of last season then all will be forgiven but if he struggles for even a moment it seems likely they'll turn on him. There's also the possibility that Spurs will take their deal off the table in the face of Remy's snub.

Arsenal are reportedly looking to bolster their depth at center back with an interest in former Spurs man Steven Caulker.

With only Per Mertesacker, Lorient Koscielny and Thomas Vermaelen as first team-quality center backs and occasional deputy at that position Bacary Sagna likely on his way, Arsenal need at least one more center back this summer. If Spurs don't regret letting Steven Caulker go for too cheap a price last summer, they'll doubly regret it if Arsenal land their former player now that his current club, Cardiff City, have been relegated. The move would make sense for Arsenal and the player. The only question is whether Cardiff City need to sell him to make their finances work and whether Arsenal's is the best offer.

Arsenal and Loic Remy have reportedly agreed personal terms ahead of a £10 million transfer from QPR.

Remy spent last season on loan at Newcastle and finished the season with 14 goals. The striker has continuously stated he wants a move to a club where he can play European football. Arsenal fit the bill, as they'll be in the Champions League next year if they win their qualifier. Remy is a great addition to Arsenal as they lack a supporting striker behind Olivier Giroud. Remy provides the depth required to compete in both the Premier League and Champions League. Arsenal learned the importance of depth this season after a series of season-ending injuries to their star players. Look for Remy to involved all season long. If true, the deal should be confirmed soon.

Jack Collison has been released by West Ham United after making six starts this season.

Collison has battled persistent knee problems that have caused him to miss time over and over again. The midfielder came through the academy ranks and made his debut in 2007 and was out on loan to Wigan last season. The chances of him playing in the Premier League are low and he's more likely to find a job in the Championship.

Bobby Zamora's 90th minute goal was enough to send Queens Park Rangers back into the Premier League with a playoff win over Derby County.

The veteran forward has likely played his last match for QPR but his final kick was a huge one for a club on the financial brink. Down and man and likely headed to extra time, Zamora's goal propels Harry Redknapp's men back to the Premier League where they will have a chance to get their spending under control without going into administration. This was Zamora's second play-off winner following his 2005 goal that sent West Ham United into the Premier League.

Loic Remy has consistently linked to a move to one top half club or another for the last few months with Arsenal, Spurs and Liverpool the most frequently mentioned.

Exactly what any of these clubs would be getting isn't entirely clear. The Remy from QPR's relegation campaign two seasons ago certainly wasn't impressive. The Remy from the first half of Newcastle's season this year was exceptional. The injured and ineffective Remy from the second half of Newcastle's season this year was back to being fairly anonymous. As part of a forward rotation, the likely use all three clubs would have for Remy, this could be a solid acquisition. If any of them are looking at the French international as their main man then it becomes a more questionable acquisition.
