Marseille striker Loic Remy looks set to snub a move to the Premier League after claiming he is willing to stay with the Ligue 1 side beyond the end of the current season.

 

Remy has attracted interest from Tottenham and Arsenal, with Spurs manager Harry Redknapp watching the forward in action earlier this season before declaring an interest in taking him to White Hart Lane.

 

Spurs reportedly had an £18 million bid turned down for the French forward during the January transfer window, but are said to gearing themselves up for another bid at the end of the season.

 

However their chances of landing the 25-year-old were dealt a blow after he hinted he would be happy to stay with Marseille despite their recent troubles on the pitch.

 

"It would be disrespectful to look at [my] prospects for next year, when I'm already at a club," he told Goal.com

 

"My head is here, my pre-season will be here. Then we will see what follows; there are many things that come into play. It is too early to start talking; it's not at all in my head.

 

"I still have three years remaining on my contract. Next year I will be here. For me it makes sense to stay here next year."

 

Marseille sit in tenth place in Ligue after a disappointing campaign to date and are 19 points adrift of Lille, who occupy the third and final Champions League spot in Ligue 1.

 

Arsenal have also been linked with a move for Remy in the past, with Arsene Wenger said to be keen on bringing the talented forward to the Emirates Stadium in the past , however the Gunners’ interest appears to have waned somewhat of late.
