Loic Remy says it is 'out of the question' that he will be leaving Marseille in January amid reported interest from Tottenham.

According to the 24-year-old French international has been a long-term target for the Barclays Premier League outfit, who are considering a bid during the transfer window.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp was in attendance for Marseille's 2-0 win over Lille on Sunday, with Remy netting both goals in his side's home success over the reigning Ligue 1 champions.

Despite constant speculation surrounding his future, Remy insists he is undistracted by rumours linking him with White Hart Lane, and says he felt no extra pressure to perform in front of numerous potential suitors.

"There was no additional pressure," he 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."

Meanwhile, Marseille boss Didier Deschamps revealed he was aware that the Tottenham manager was in attendance at Stade Velodrome yesterday, but is adamant none of his key players will be offloaded.

"I knew he was here," he said. "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."
