Nice general manager Patrick Governatori does not expect Loic Remy to join Tottenham and has revealed that there has been no serious interest from England since July.
Remy's agent, Frederic Guerra, told skysports.com at the weekend that he expected movement regarding his client's future in the middle of this week.
A host of Premier League clubs, including Spurs, West Ham, Stoke, Liverpool, Everton and Aston Villa, have all been linked with the £14million-rated France international.
But Governatori believes that a move to England is now unlikely, which could offer an incentive to Nice's French rivals, Marseille and Lyon.
"For me, Tottenham is over and I even can't see anymore opportunity for Loic to move to England," Governatori said in L'Equipe.
"We did not receive anything from Tottenham. When people are interested in a player, they talk."
Governatori has confirmed that he held discussions with West Ham regarding the 23-year-old in July, but he has not received any major contact since that time.
"We haven't had anything since West Ham, who we had a real talk with last month. There is nothing serious anymore from England."
