According to Sky Sports, Redknapp said: "He had a stringent medical here, one at Newcastle, one with the French team before the World Cup. He's never had a problem with his fitness - you couldn't meet a fitter lad. I don't see there could be any issue with his fitness. Their loss is our gain. I've got a fantastic striker.
"It can't be a medical one because he's never been unfit. It's not possible. It certainly didn't make any sense - there has to be another reason. It can't be a medical issue. There must have been some kind of breakdown or they've decided to move in another direction.
"Liverpool is a football club that usually handle everything fantastically. I've never dealt with anybody better than them over the years. However, all the talk of the medical doesn't make any sense to me."
Looks like Dr. 'Arry is in luck following Liverpool's decision to pass on the French striker.
