Tottenham target Loic Remy has said that it is “out of the question” that he will leave Marseille at this stage of the season.

The striker has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League side and a swoop for the France international was reportedly being lined up by Tottenham this January transfer window.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp watched on as Remy scored both of his side’s goals in their 2-0 win over Lille on Sunday evening, but the player was adamant that it had no effect on his performance and that he is happy to stay put.

"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 just as non-plussed by the presence of Redknapp, and added: "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."
