Loic Remy might end up staying at Queens Park Rangers with the London club planning to offer him a new contract, according to the London Evening Standard.

The French striker's career seems to be in limbo after the player's proposed move to Liverpool fell through due to a failed medical.

With Remy having not played an integral part in France's World Cup campaign, interest seems to be diminishing in the 27-year-old who made only two appearances in Brazil - both as a late substitute in which he failed to score a single goal.

However, his 14 goals in 26 games on loan at Newcastle United last season prove that, given an important role in a team, he can deliver in the Premier League.

Remy's history

Remy started his career at hometown club of Lyon, where he spent seven years as a youth player and a further two as a full-time professional. 

The then French giants offloaded him to Lens on loan where he scored three times in ten games. In that same year of 2008, having returned to Lyon, he signed a four-year-deal for Nice and enjoyed some success by netting 28 goals in 68 appearances for the Ligue 1 side. 

That sparked a lot of interest from another French cub in the form of Marseille, who bought the striker for an estimated fee of €15 million in 2010. He had an almost identical record here to the one he had at Nice: 27 goals in the same amount of competitive appearances.   

After that the QPR and Newcastle period came along which everyone thought would develop Remy into a Liverpool signing. That move is now completely dead, however, which leaves Remy's future up in the air.

QPR signings

Jordan Mutch is now a QPR player, with 22-year-old having completed a move to Loftus Road in a deal worth £6 million.

The midfielder would be a massive loss to Cardiff City - his current club - who will be looking to bounce back to the Premier League after being relegated last season.

Other big signings have been made by Harry Redknapp in the shape of another former Cardiff man in Steven Caulker and former England international Rio Ferdinand whose defensive capabilities will definitely bolster Rangers' defence.
