Marseille striker felt no extra pressure after being watched by Spurs

Loic Remy says it is 'out of the question' that he will be leaving Marseille in January after he was watched by Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp. France international Remy has been a long-term target for Redknapp and reports have suggested he could be the subject of a transfer window bid by Spurs. Redknapp took in Marseille's game against Lille on Sunday and Remy scored both goals in the 2-0 home success over the reigning French champions. Remy insists he did not feel under pressure to perform in front of Redknapp and is adamant there are no plans for him to leave Stade Velodrome this month.

Sorted out

"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." He added to L'Equipe that he had lots to do with his present club. "I still have a lot to do here. We will see at the right time, and above all when I will be ready." Marseille boss Didier Deschamps was also unconcerned by Redknapp's attendance against Lille and is not looking to offload any of his key players. Deschamps said: "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."
