Remy plays down January transfer

Loic Remy says it is "out of the question" he will be leaving Marseille in January after he was watched by Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp.

France international Remy has been a long-term target for Redknapp and reports have suggested he could be the subject of a transfer-window bid by Spurs.

Redknapp took in Marseille's game against Lille on Sunday and Remy scored both goals in the 2-0 home success over the reigning French champions.

"There was no additional pressure," Remy told France Football.


"It is nice, it means some clubs have shown interest but it has already been sorted out with the chairman and the coach - it is out of the question to leave now."

Marseille boss Didier Deschamps was also unconcerned by Redknapp's attendance against Lille and is not looking to offload any of his key players.

Deschamps said: "I knew he was here. He probably came to watch some players but he came for nothing, it is useless.

"If I were to meet him I would tell him, 'Wait and see'. They have important financial power, but I have important matches to play.

"It is not the right moment to lose our best players."
