Loic Remy has revealed that his move to Liverpool collapsed due to concerns over his heart.

The French international was a transfer target for the Merseyside club, who were keen on signing him from Queens Park Rangers. However, the deal fell apart when he failed his medical.

Reports suggested that Liverpool's medical staff were concerned with Remy's medical condition.

The 27-year-old left QPR and moved to Chelsea in the final week of the summer transfer window, after signing a four-year deal.

The former QPR striker has expressed his frustration after Brendan Rodgers' side made their concerns about his medical condition public.

"I came for the medical tests and everything was fine and after that they wanted to be sure everything was fine with my heart," Goal.com quoted Remy as saying.

"They asked for a specialist for the heart and apparently the guy said they did not 100% agree if I could keep going or had to stop football. I didn't understand because they knew before I came. I just told my agent if it is not happening it is because it is not for me.

"Now I am much better here at Chelsea, I'm very happy to be here and that's why I say everything happens for a reason. There are a lot of players with the same case as me. I don't know why the people think it is a big thing that can stop me playing football."

"I was more confused by Liverpool saying that I had medical problem because it is not fair. I have seen the best specialist in London and he has told me I can still play, so it was not good from them.

"Even if they don't want to sign me, okay, but they don't have to put that in the newspapers because, then, all the other clubs after are afraid," the Chelsea striker concluded.
