Ferdinand: Rejected offer from Ukrainian side Dnipro to join QPR
Anton Ferdinand has revealed he turned down a lucrative move to Dnipro in favour of a switch to Queens Park Rangers.
The 26-year-old joined ambitious QPR on transfer deadline after Sunderland decided to offload the defender.
Ferdinand admits the offer from Ukraine was more lucrative than QPR's, but he insists the move to Dnipro did not excite him.
"The offer from Ukraine came in first and it didn't excite me - I'm not someone who goes somewhere because the money was right," Ferdinand told The Times.
"I'm all about my football and if you do well in football, the money comes to you."
