Marseille forward Loic Remy still wants to join Tottenham this summer, despite their failure to reach the Champions League, reports the Daily Mirror.

The 25-year-old has scored 14 goals and made six assists in 43 appearances for the Ligue 1 outfit this season, alerting the attention of a number of potential suitors.

Rated at around £22million, Remy told Spurs representatives in Paris last week that he is more concerned about who he will be playing for should he swap France for a move to White Hart Lane, after seeking assurances about the long-term future of Harry Redknapp.

The Spurs boss only has one year to run on his existing contract, but is yet to be offered a new deal by chairman Daniel Levy.

After guiding the club into the top four for the second time in three seasons, Redknapp and co were left heartbroken when Chelsea clinched the Champions League crown in Munich on Saturday, meaning Spurs drop down into the Europa League.

However, the manager and the north London outfit's reputation remains strong enough to attract players that will improve Spurs' chances of qualifying for Europe's elite club competition next season.

Levy is already in Amsterdam and understood to be finalising a deal to bring Ajax defender Jan Vertonghen to the Premier League, and the addition of Remy will also mark sound business by the Champions League hopefuls.
